Gymlet heads new ‘skinny’ Slug and Lettuce menu

Gymlet Slug and Lettuce

Bar chain Slug and Lettuce is taking “skinny” to the next level with a range of cocktails including a Gymlet and a Body Blitz.

Introduced today (May 27), the cocktails are part of a new summer offering that also includes a food menu of light bites and promotional special offers.

The summer campaign has been dubbed “JAM”, standing for “just add mates”, aimed at attracting female customers for a “girly get-together”.

The bars have also introduced #TanquerayThursdays when customers are invited to enjoy two-for-one offers on Tanqueray and Tonic nationwide.

The new cocktails include the Gymlet (pictured), made with Tanqueray Gin, lime juice and agave, and the Body Blitz – a shot of St-Germain elderflower liqueur topped up with prosecco.

The Cîroc Hard Abs is made with the new Cîroc Pink Grapefruit vodka with fresh lime juice and sugar syrup over crushed ice, garnished with a grapefruit wedge. The Long Distance Runner combines Disaronno, lemon juice and cranberry juice, topped up with lemonade or soda. See below for recipes for the summer cocktails.

The bars also have a wide range of offers on Small Plate Sharers, with three dishes at a minimum price of £10. Customers can also claim rewards such as free drinks and festival tickets by checking in on Facebook.

Beth Macdonald, head of marketing for the Slug and Lettuce, said: “Summer is a time to get together and as such our venues always prove very popular. We pride ourselves on providing the best offers to our customers year-round and this season is no different but our JAM campaign is one which we are very excited about. After all what’s better than enjoying a cocktail with a pal or two and being rewarded for it.”
