Cocktail relives moment the royal couple first met
The venue which acted as the starting point for Prince William and Kate Middleton's impending marriage is relaunching the cocktail the future king used to drink during his regular visits there.
In 2001 Fairmont St Andrews hosted the charity fashion show in which Miss Middleton appeared in a sheer black lace dress while the Prince watched from a front row seat – widely reported to be the first time his head was turned by his future fiancée.
Prince William was a regular visitor to Fairmont St Andrews during his time studying at St Andrews University, becoming an active member of the resort’s gym and spa and could be seen regularly enjoying a fruit cocktail in the Atrium and Kittocks Den at the resort.
His favoured drink comprised orange juice, grapefruit juice, passion-fruit juice, mango juice, pineapple juice, lime juice, and kiwi syrup.
The cocktail - now named the Royal Cocktail in commemoration of Friday's nuptials - can now be enjoyed again at the venue where the second-in-line to the throne sipped happily while (possibly) thinking of his future bride...
It costs just £5 - which is significantly cheaper than a Royal Wedding but just as refreshing.
