London's Grosvenor Hotel Offers Victorian Cocktails

Martini

Good news for tipplers in London: Guoman Hotels has announced that the Grosvenor hotel's new Reunion bar will be offering an exclusive limited edition Victorian-themed cocktail menu throughout December.

Inspired by the Victorian era when the historic London hotel was originally built (and, perhaps, nearby Victoria Station), guests can try a 'Penny Black', 'Dorian Gray' or 'Victorian Martini.'

Visitors to the new destination bar can also sample 'The 19th Century,' made with Beefeater dry gin, orange juice and dark chocolate infused with baby figs and Madagascan vanilla, which has been shortlisted for the prestigious Beefeater 24 South Regional cocktail championships.

An "explosive" rum based cocktail including gunpowder tea, the 'HMS Temeraire' is named after the first British ship to be equipped with barbette gun shields in 1876. 'Cuffs and Buttons' is a refreshing fruity tipple based on a traditional Victorian recipe which later became known as Southern Comfort.
