The summer sun is in full force allowing buds to expose their petals as they transition from spring. Their thawed roots seep down to slurp the moistened soil. People head to their local green houses to offer a new home for the flowers. The Lobby Bar at One Aldwych hotel has a little something special to offer consumers honoring the warmer weather.
No need for a green thumb, the flowers have already been infused into BLOOM gin. Using the light and floral notes of this award-winning premium London Dry Gin fashioned by the first female master distiller, Joanne Moore, head bartender Tiago Mira designs each limited edition cocktail, ending July 14th. Each cocktail pulls out the sweet hints of honeysuckle, chamomile, and pomelo (see a list below). Craving some aesthetically pleasing tangible flowers? Flowers At One florist Mark Siredzuk crafted floral instillation complementing the cocktails. The arrangements include foxtail lilies, almond twigs, lavender, witch hazel, agave plants, and chamomile daisy flowers. Sip and smell to satisfy the flower child within.
