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 dropped in at the course 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 and 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 the cocktail will have a few hearts fluttering.”
