El Pirata have teamed up with the popular gin manufacturer Puerto de Indias for the event, with the pair creating several tempting cocktails, including a fruity Strawberry Gin Indias and the Puerto Pink Pepper (which is served with peppercorns and a twist of lemon). Alternatively, diners can opt for a glass of the Puerto French which combines gin with a classic Spanish cava.
