❀ Spring ‣ Menu ❁

Out with the old and in with the new. The Spring equinox always feels somewhat cleansing; just as winter’s drawn on that little bit too long and the festive season is a vanquishing speck on an expandingly-bleak horizon. Suddenly, day matches night and the weight lifts a touch. It’s only going one way from here.

As ever, we try to reflect this gentle optimism in what little way we can through our shifting drinks selections. Out with those robust, deep flavours and earthy spice, in with lighter strokes: fresh mint and lemongrass, violet and forsythia syrup (it’s purple and has CBD in - woof), grappa!

On the list we’ve got a blended mezcal and reposado Sazerac; sweet and smoky with a soft verdant spice. A Boulevardier with the best - independently of each other - amaro and rosso vermouth we’ve ever tasted (Argala’s Amaro Alpino and Discarded vermouth in case you’re wondering). An armagnac or Sidecar-type sour with cured lemon paste, dubbed the ‘Uber XL’.

For the highball it’s our first ever go at a Collins with a distinctly Turkish twist melding sumac and grapefruit. That purple CBD syrup marries up to Reyka vodka and Birds botanical spirit in the crushed ice fix that is and only could be ‘Purple Drank’. Then to finish we sorta-made-our-own white creme de menthe by infusing ume sake with mint which pairs with that Domus grappa for a palette cleansing Stinger to finish.

The list in full starts this evening and will be available to taste up until the summer solstice (or thereabouts) when we’ll all dress-up like druids and wind-down for summer. If you read this and come down tonight (Thursday March 21st) ask the bartender when do the clocks go forwards? and we’ll give you something free to try. Call that an Easter egg for following us this far!

Chloé Martini ~ recipe

Our most popular serve this winter has been our dessert cocktail offering, synonymous with the alias of its’ creator. You’ll all know Anna as Anna but, by day, she sun-lights (sic?) as recording artist and producer Chloé Martini. Anna’s favourite drink was a Last Word, her favourite spirit Green Chartreuse. She’s worked here on her own version using pine and plum for this menu; more of a pallete-cleansing ‘Stinger-esque’ night-cap than an out-and-out sweet finisher. It was reasoned, as well, that this seasons’ CBD offering would be with this serve, just the tonic before cosying up in bed for a night of lucid dreams. It’s the first drink she’s made for us and certainly won’t be the last! Suffice to say her favourite drink now is a Chloé Martini.

Chloé Martini   Dessert Cocktail / Sweet

Chloé Martini

Dessert Cocktail / Sweet

2 oz (60 ml) London Dry Gin, preferably Victory; infused with damson jam (see note)

1/2 oz (15 ml) Green Chartreuse

1/4 oz (7.5 ml) BTW Pine CBD Syrup

3/4 oz (22 ml) Lime Juice

3 squirts Bittermens Krupnik Honey Bitters

Lemon Zest (for garnish)

Chill down a Nick & Nora or a small martini glass and set aside. In a cocktail shaker, add all the liquid ingredients including the bitters, pack with ice and shake vigorously until sufficiently chilled. Double strain the contents into your chilled glass, garnish with a lemon zest and serve!

Note: To infuse gin with jam take two bottles gin per 220g jar of jam (work up or down to that ratio dependent on how much gin you want to make). Combine the two in a sealed jar and leave over-night. Strain the liquid through some muslin cloth the next day and re-bottle.

Our signature syrup from the Autumn drew a fair old amount of hype, so now we’ve bottled it up and made it available to you. Great in cocktails (obviously) with sprits and in hot drinks (we’ve been sipping recently with our lemon zinger kombucha tea). Also works wonderfully as a flavour-enhancing food supplement. Add one or two tablespoons to your recipes and away you go :)
