Spring & Summer Cocktails 2018!

After a great deal of discussion (and `testing` for quality control purposes!) we have come up with a lovely new Cocktails Menu for the Lounge Bar this spring and summer.

We really love our Grange Slammer, a veritable joy-filled experience of fruity sloe gin combined with the intoxicating Italian almond liqueur known as Amaretto, and a liberal dash of fresh orange juice and cranberry juice to finish it off. PURE HEAVEN!

Or, if you prefer something lighter with naughty bubbles tickling your nostrils, we do a perfectly delicious Prosecco Royale, with the addition of crème de cassis. Very moreish indeed! And, of course, the old favourite Bellini Prosecco with the delightful flavour of peach nectar. Mmmm!

We have also found something really different for those of you who have a spirit of adventure! Our Highland Whiskuie is a heady mix of fine Scottish whisky and Drambuie with a touch of elderflower cordial and angostura bitters over ice. Guaranteed to warm the soul!

There are oodles more to choose from, so next time you visit us at the Grange Hotel, ask one of our charming bar staff for their perfect cocktail recommendation to suit your tastes, and HEY PRESTO. Sorted.

 

Winter Cocktails!!

We are pleased to announce the arrival of our NEW WINTER COCKTAILS menu, perfect for the festive season and beyond. There are some really delicious concoctions on there, and we felt duty-bound to test them all out on your behalf! We loved the Jack Frost cocktail, with it`s pretty blue hue and delicious coconut & succulent pineapple flavours. Just think Pina Colada and add a dash of Curacoa…that will give you an idea of how wonderful this one is! We also loved the heady flavours of Tangerine Dream…..a fabulous combination of gin, Cointreau, lime juice and marmalade. Yes. Marmalade! On a lighter note, we`ve also introduced a bubbly little number called Rosie Cheeks; a girly, pink sparkling rose with some festive pomegranate juice to add to the fruity cheer. And if you need warming up, try a glass of our delicious spiced-up mulled wine…a veritable little hotty, guaranteed to chase away the winter blues. And we includes a mini warm mince pie, just to make doubly sure!!

And if you are in a tropical mood, our Pina Colada Cocktail is just for you! A delectable blend of white Rum, fresh pineapple juice and a hint of coconut cream to transport you to the Caribbean!

And we couldn`t possibly miss out another firm favourite…the Classic Mojito with its refreshing mint flavours enhanced with white rum and Angostura bitters. Lovely!

Our Beautiful Little Town!

Grange over Sands is a picturesque, unspoiled coastal town, located on the southernmost edge of the beautiful English Lake District.

With its panoramic bay views and temperate climate, it has everything to offer the most discerning traveller to these parts…….beautiful gardens & parks, unique shops, cafes, bars and a wonderful mile-long promenade.

And we are so easy to get to! We have our very own pretty little railway station (award-winning, of course!), which enjoys a regular rail service between us and the north and south. We even have regular DIRECT links to Manchester airport. But if you prefer to take the car, we are an enjoyable and simple 12-mile journey – mainly along dual-carriageway – from the M6 motorway. We are also within easy travelling distance from the heart of the Lakes, with so much to see and do.

Here are just a few pictures of what makes Grange over Sands one of the prettiest small towns in the UK! We do hope you get the opportunity to visit this little gem of a place, with its air of peaceful gentility in a beautiful location.

The Magical Lake District!

Living in the UK, it`s sometimes easy to forget just how lucky we are….especially with our glorious scenery, fine architecture and places of ancient historical interest. Here is just a little taster of why we think the Lake District is one of the worlds most stunningly beautiful locations……

The Beautiful Lake District on our Doorstep

Only 20 minutes by car from the Hotel, Bowness-on Windermere is a great day out for people of all ages. And what could be finer than a view like this to warm the soul? The steamboat ferry is a wonderful way to see the fantastic views from the Lake, and you can travel from Lakeside to either Bowness or a bit further to the top of the Lake at Ambleside

And about 30 mins away to the east, you can spend a great day in Kirkby Lonsdale, a quaint little market town with interesting shops, great pubs, super little cafes & the best ice cream in Cumbria. And the walk down by the river at Devil`s Bridge is a wonderful way to work up an appetite for Dinner back at the Grange Hotel!!
