Barts, the hidden speakeasy in Chelsea Cloisters block are offering up the first ever tobacco cocktail menu called Barts Goes Up In Smoke.
London’s Chelsea speakeasy bar Barts reckons this will soon be a firm trend in the big smoke (gettit?). The menu will consist of three quirky smoke-themed cocktails such as The Cig’nature Cocktail, In Vogue and Holy Smoke.
One of the aims of the tobacco cocktail menu is to lessen that troublesome urge to go outside for a cigarette for smokers. These cocktails should give them their fix in the snug warmness of Barts without them having to venture outside. Wether this will work or not we are unsure though we plan to send a couple of smokers down to try out the menu and report back.
All the drinks on the Barts Goes up in Smoke menu are made with Perique Tobacco Liqueur, which is made by artisans from the rarest tobacco in the world: Louisiana Perique. The liqueur contains all the rich aroma of this tobacco, but in a form that greatly diminishes the health concerns associated with its traditional use.
So what's in these cocktails then? Well, The Holy Smoke cocktail is a tangy blend of Perique, Hennessy V.S., Havana Club 7 Y.O. and Vanilla Syrup. Guests will have never tried a signature drink quite like The Cig’nature Cocktail, which is an enticing mix of Perique, Lindisfarne Mead, Lemon Juice and Perrier Jouet Champagne. The elegant In Vogue, which combines Perique, Sauza Hornitos Tequila, Raspberry Puree, Gomme Syrup and Crème de Framboise should satisfy any cravings.
Worth a try!
