We decided to make a bold move recently. To offer a brand new menu, a range of cocktails that were all new to the audience. It was around the sixth year in a row we’d be invited by the club to provide cocktails at the annual party. And we know what they like. But in order to keep it interesting, we decided to challenge the party go-ers.
To offer them a menu with cocktails they’d not had before. Out went the firm favourites : the Mojito, the French 75 and the mighty St. Louis. And we had a ball. There was some initial reluctance from some (so we found out later!)
“I wasn’t sure I’d like anything” Alison told us towards the end of the evening, but she found that she did. Phew! Fortunately they all gave it a go. With an all-new menu we were interested to see what went well. And the overall winner by a fair margin was our in-house creation the Rhubarb Martini. Featuring Warner Edwards stonking rhubarb gin (pictured left) combined with Martini rosato vermouth, a little framboise syrup and a few dashes of rhubarb bitters, it is a winner.
We’re always up for the challenge of offering our guests, and more to the point your guests, some new concoctions to stimulate the senses. Maybe we might even introduce you to your next favourite cocktail. This has happened a few times already. Let’s do this.
