Put a Spring in your step with our new cocktails
Posted on April 17, 2015 by admin
It’s not just the restaurant menu that changes with the seasons – as we step forward into Spring there’s a whole host of new cocktails for you to enjoy in the bar, too. Whether you like your drinks Fresh & Fruity or Dark & Delicious, want to try one of our bar team’s aqua shard Signatures or are indulging with one of our decadent Champagne Cocktails, there’s sure to be something to tempt you.
A topical tipple is April Showers, a take on the classic vodka sour combining Ciroc Vodka with lychee juice, Crème de Peche, passion fruit and vanilla syrup, shaken with egg white and Absinthe and topped with orange bitters.
New to the aqua shard Signatures selection is a clever Clear Colada, which instead of the usual rum uses Haig Club whisky, fat-washed with coconut and blended with Crème de Cacao. It’s an unusual take on the classic Piña Colada, keeping the tropical taste of coconut but taking away the sweetness to deliver a cocktail that’s complex and satisfying.
For something Dark & Delicious, ideal for after dinner or simply after dark, why not try La Serveuse de Cocktail, a potent blend of Bulleit bourbon, Belsazar Red and Belsazar Dry vermouths and Mozart Dark chocolate liqueur? Reminiscent of a Negroni it’s slightly sweeter but still strong and satisfying, perfect for rounding off your evening.
We do hope that you’ll make the most of the longer evenings to come and join us for one - or more! – of the new cocktails soon. The bar is open from 12 noon until 1am daily and operates on a walk-in basis.
