This racy and late-night Seminyak speakeasy is no stranger to throwing it back to the wonder years. The sleek and sultry vibes are a nod to the glitz and glamour of the Prohibition era, whilst the twenties-style interiors would make Gatsby himself proud….
Well, this new Rock ‘n’ Roll Cocktail Collection hasn’t disappointed either, inspired by the classic hits of musical greats. There are 12 cocktails in total – each promising a sensory experience that’ll rock your world – but here are our top 5 that should be at the top of your must-sip list. Rock on!
A spiced & spirited sip: Start Me Up
In the spirit of The Rolling Stones, the Start Me Up cocktail is a rum-based concoction pepped up with a kick of homemade coffee and a spicy liqueur, balanced out with an infused, fortified wine. This contrasting combination comes together to create a fresh, energetic and earthy taste – much like this classic tune that can get any party started.
A rocking twist on the G&T: Purple Haze
One to make Jimi proud, the Purple Haze takes the classic G&T to a new dimension. The typical gin base has been infused with botanical ingredients, distorting the balance of the original cocktail and giving it a gorgeous purple haze…
A nod to the Negroni: Free Bird
As high as the solo in this Lynyrd Skynyrd classic, the Free Bird cocktail riffs off of one of the most famous cocktails in the world. Stored in oak barrels to give it a distinctive, woody flavour, this Negroni twist has both body and wings thanks to a kick from fresh coffee grains.
A sultry Martini hit: Black Magic Woman
An elegant Martini cocktail with a rum base, the Black Magic Woman (named after Santana’s rock hit) is a sultry little number infused with botanical ingredients, spicy syrups and a healthy balance of baseline earthiness. Topped with a layer of white foam, this one’s a stunner.
A smouldering secret: When the Smoke is Going Down
Subtle hints and flavours of The Scorpion’s classic hit come and go in this dry gin-based cocktail. Stirred with homemade jasmine syrup and a healthy dose of Vermouth, earthy flavours hide beneath the tang of rose-scented smoke – you’ll taste it as soon as the smoke goes down…
Rock on, Honeys!
