Hotel Café Royal is set to launch 10 new cocktails in collaboration with Parfums Givenchy, celebrating L’Atelier de Givenchy fine fragrances
All 10 L’Atelier de Givenchy creations are exclusive to Harrods, and the hotel’s exclusive cocktail collection will be available in the hotel’s vibrant Green Bar, debuting from 22 August to 30 September 2016, priced at £15 per cocktail. The latest perfume in the L’Atelier de Givenchy fine fragrances collection, Iris Harmonique, will be getting particular attention.
Developed by Bar Manager, Derren King, the 10 cocktails have been designed to reflect the perfumes while remaining in keeping with the Green Bar’s celebration of botanicals. Marrying the world of scents and flavours, Derren has worked closely with Givenchy using their detailed perfume notes to create a collection of drinks that range from fresh, floral and summery concoctions, to headier, full-bodied cocktails, all paired with a selection of distinctive garnishes and glassware.
Each cocktail will have its own distinct colour and unique personality and taste. Highlighting the strong link between scent and taste, the new fragrances will be kept behind the bar for guests to experience before choosing their preferred cocktail from the list, served alongside scented buttons created by Givenchy.
Cocktails include the summery Chypre Caresse (Slingsby London Dry Gin with freshly squeezed grapefruit, agave syrup and Peychauds Bitters, topped with Prosecco and Maraschino), Oud Flamboyant (with woody nuances of Nikka Coffey Grain whisky, coconut noir iced tea, Manuka honey and flash-flamed cinnamon) and Iris Harmonique (coconut-infused Ketel One Vodka, kumquat liqueur and lemon zest). All cocktails are also available alcohol-free.
