|Martinis go hand-in-hand with the jazz age and the general boom atmosphere of the 1920’s. The two new cocktails inspired by The Great Gatsby available from April are:
‘The Daisy’ – A simple brown spirit-and-ginger ale highball was a common order during the 1920’s. The Milestone Hotel recommends mixing your favorite bourbon with a ginger beer. Created for drinkers to capture their inner independent spirit just like Daisy Buchanan!
‘The Gatsby’ – Using gin and vermouth, this Martini is impeccably styled! Add a dash of maraschino liqueur, bitters, and dose of absinthe, and you have yourself The Milestone Hotel’s version of ‘The Tuxedo.’
To accompany these new cocktails a ‘Flappers Platter’ will be served referencing some 1920’s favorites including three very diverse items: Crab Stuffed Mushrooms with Parmesan, Waldorf Salad,Rinktum Diddy (This dish includes onion, tomato and cheese with paprika, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce are all mixed together with two beaten eggs and cooked on low heat.)
Stephen Bowman, Ollie Baines and Humphrey Berney of the Brit Award winning vocal group BLAKE were on hand to taste the cocktails. “We BLAKE boys certainly enjoy a little 1920′s glamour: the fashions, the music and importantly, the drinks! It was a very fun era, so it feels right to celebrate it in style.”
A selection of speakeasy events will also be unveiled by The Milestone Hotel to further celebrate the styles and flavors of the 1920’s including a dinner with leading Fashion Editor Hilary Alexanderon June 27th on fashions of the 20’s and their comeback. On July 4th, The Cocktail Lovers will host a cocktail tasting and master class on 1920’s cocktails at a reception at the hotel.
