Game, set and match
Posted on June 27, 2016 by admin
It’s Wimbledon time again! We have always felt that a great way to enjoy a tennis game is to sit back, relax and sip on a cocktail (or two).
In homage to the great sporting event, Bars manager Luca challenged his team with a competition to create cocktail around the theme of Wimbledon. The bar team of 12 were split into four teams of three, to work together and develop something delicious.
The bartenders that won were Edward, Richard and Tommaso; they were inspired by quintessentially British ingredients of gin, strawberry, and Pimms, and created a refreshing, fun and glamorous drink.
Shaken together, this drink consists of Tanqueray gin, lemon juice, Cointreau and strawberry jam. Once thoroughly shaken, it is poured into a martini glass and a foam of Pimms and lemonade is layered on top into a meringue shaped peak, with a white chocolate covered strawberry as garnish.
This drink of course works well with our Wimbledon dessert! Our dessert ‘Strawberry & white chocolate cream’ is a green apple crumb, with a medley of strawberries – fresh, dehydrated, a compote and a jelly – and a white chocolate cream.
