Heston Blumenthal's  HIND'S HEAD in Bray's Gold Rush cocktail served in a coop with purple flower

What kinda crazy person plans World Cocktail Day on a Wednesday?! The midweek hangover has been, well, urgh. So in true Muddy spirit, we’re celebrating (just about anything these days) into the weekend. Welcome to Quarantini Time – a chance to stretch your cocktail know-how beyond a Bucks Fizz or Mojito.

Where better to start than the Heston Blumenthal’s cocktail bible from The Hind’s Head in Bray. While we can’t sit in The Hind’s Head’s Royal Lounge right now, we can tickle our tastebuds with one of its decadent drinkies. So cocktail glasses at the ready for a… Gold Rush. Complete the Hind’s Head look by adding taxidermy on your walls.

From today this Muddy award-winning, Michelin starred gastropub is launching its ToGo menu. Foodie heaven at home. The menu will change weekly, simply order online and you’re sent a time slot to pick up.

Serves 1
