Ayr Racecourse’s Diamond Derby an odds-on winner at £2000
AN exotic new cocktail is odds on to be a winner at Ayr Racecourse.
The Diamond Derby consists of gin, cointreau, lemon juice and champagne with a very special ingredient thrown in – a half-carat diamond supplied by Ayr jeweller Andrew Strang of Designer Goldsmith.
And the cost of this sparkling cocktail is £2000!
To launch the drink, Girvan model Amy Gould (pictured above) dropped in at Ayr Racecourse and voted the Diamond Derby a huge hit.
The 20 year old said: “What a stunning cocktail! Any girl would be pleased to be bought this drink. The first thing you notice is the diamond set into a strawberry – I’m sure this will be popular with racegoers – particularly those who back a winner or two.”
Ayr Racecourse marketing director Lindsey Smith added: “They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and the magnificent sparkler in this cocktail will have a few hearts fluttering.”
