Experimental cocktails at the Botanist

Pipettes, dry ice and atomisers are all new to the menu this summer

The Botanist has launched an all new collection of phytology-inspired cocktails just in time for summer.

The new line-up features cocktails to stimulate the senses featuring homemade botanical essences and scents, and use atomisers to creative an immersive experience! New additions here are the Passionfruit & Basil Crush, Lemon & Jasmine Collins, Blueberry & Passionfruit Martini, Poppy & Pomegranate Fizz, and Elderflower & Lavender Fizz.

A selection of Botanical cocktails have been curiously curated for the new menu, too. Featuring the whimsical Peach & Apple Pot, summer-essential Pimms Tea Cup, Pear & Tea-Wi Cup and an update for one of The Botanist’s signature cocktails; Apricot & Peach Smash. All Botanical cocktails are served in plant pots and feature plenty of ‘cocktail theatre’ – with dry ice creating a spectacle to behold.

The Botanist’s unique flair to old favourites is also seeing the Classic Old Fashioned reimaged with flavours of Rhubarb and Gin, and a Mint Julep with hedgerow flavours of blackberry. These new creations are truly following the seasons; with new inclusions featuring iconic and fresh summer tastes, with berries, plums, lemon and basil all taking starring roles throughout.

Nick Whitby, Head of Bars at The Botanist says the menu is a ‘perfect combination of science and botany’. He said: “Phytology and mixology were key when creating the menu.

“Our Green Martini is so colourful and nourishing due to the ingredients we use; this particular cocktail features tested and verified Chlorophyll, which is the green pigment responsible for helping plants absorb light.”

The new cocktail additions with sit alongside the award-winning cocktail menu including firm favourites such as The Botanist and The English Mojito.
