Taste Istanbul’s Spice Market with Four Seasons’ New Cocktails

Spice Market cocktails at Four Seasons Istanbul

A stop at the Grand Bazaar is a must for travelers to Istanbul, where the Spice Market lures gourmands with its aromatic array of goods used in the Ottoman Palace kitchens: from saffron to cinnamon. Now visitors can also enjoy these intoxicating flavors at the Four Seasons Hotel at the Bosphorus, one of our favorite hotels in Istanbul.

After experimenting with numerous spices and liquors, the bar’s mixologists have introduced a seasonal cocktail menu inspired by the Spice Market. The nine spiced cocktails have names evocative of the Ottoman period: Ahmer (meaning scarlet); Enhar (meaning river); and Bazar—aptly named because of the drink's mélange of rich ingredients. The mixologists have also concocted infusions with herbs and spices; think Saffron Infused Vodka Martinis and Rosemary & Cucumber Infused Gin Martinis.
