In celebration of London Fashion Week, we dedicated the month of September to fashion with a limited edition cocktail list entitled Taste The Trend.
Featuring A fashion-led mix of drinks and a delectable dessert that paid homage to this season’s biggest trends, available exclusively in Upper Rockwell, our award-winning bar.
Taking inspiration from the key looks straight off the Autumn/Winter Catwalk, we included ‘Nude Lace'; a play on the sexy allure of the romantic lace trend. This cocktail seduces with a smooth blend of creamy Mozart white chocolate liqueur with a devilishly decadent kick of Sauza tequila and the suggestion of coffee to finish. ‘Pretty Poetess’ is strong, classic and sensual, this cocktail is all woman – with a hint of bohemian, (a big trend for this season). Golden rum is stirred over ice with a hint of warming spice from our own green cardamom syrup and a slight herbaceous character from Angostura bitters.
They say Camel is the new black for this season so we lovingly created ‘The Girl in the Camel Coat’ – a wonderfully warming cocktail. Grand Marnier is used to deliver a citrus compliment to the chocolate dusting on this little sipper. A sweet nature but a hidden tequila temper.
Not forgetting dessert, our head chef Stirling Web, came up trumps with his special ‘Autumn Winter Assiette’, inspired by the muted colours for Autumn/Winter like the minimalist pieces of Aquascutum and Celine. This chic trio of chocolate, hazelnut and coconut desserts combined luxurious flavours with subtle textures and shapes, for a taste that is so on-trend. Spring/Summer 2011 editions are coming soon.
