Margaritas on the Rooftop? Espresso Martini break while you shop? Whatever you fancy, we have rounded up our go-to cocktails from some of Newmarket’s top drinking spots!
Sip away on cocktails while looking out to the city skyline from Sardine Cocktail Bars’ wrap-around balcony located on Westfield’s Rooftop Terrace. Order a custom cocktail tailored to your liking and enjoy alongside a range of Asian fusion food from White + Wong’s. If you don’t want to create your own cocktail, we recommend the Dragons Drop – with Hayman’s Old Tom gin and red chilli-infused vodka!

It wouldn’t be a complete Mexican experience without having a cheeky margarita. The Flying Burrito Brothers is the perfect place to catch up and enjoy a cocktail with some guac and corn chips – you can’t go past their classic frozen margarita, which can also be ordered by the jug!

With a drinks list carefully curated to match the bold flavours of their Indian menu, it is no surprise that V.T Station’s cocktails are the talk of the town (don’t even get us started on their exquisite food menu!). Every drink is named with reference to pop culture, with quirky and enticing ingredients. The Fools & Horses cocktail is an absolute must-try featuring La Blanche, lemon and sage syrup, and it’s served under a jar of pine-cone smoke.

The perfect place to meet with friends, or even for meetings, Cali has a delicious all-day food menu, and some killer cocktails to match! We love the Mimosas – a classic which we think is totally acceptable to have with breakfast. If this bubbly delight isn’t your drink of choice, Cali has a selection of Gin cocktails which are equally as drinkable!

An espresso bar means one thing… espresso martinis! Part of Coco Republic inside Westfield, L’Americano is the perfect spot to replenish after a long day in the shops. Sip away at a cold drip espresso martini, along with a spread of menu items inspired by food from the Italian Riviera. Think prosciutto and burrata – we’re sold!

Situated on Davis Crescent, The Lumsden Freehouse is known for their extensive craft beer list, but we’ve also discovered that they know how to whip up a cocktail or two! A must try while the temperatures are low, is their perfectly spiced Winter Warmer Mulled Wine, the best way to warm up after a long day at work or hitting the shops.
