From 22nd March to 18th April, we will be serving our take on some of the most famous classic cocktails; Blood & Sand, the White Lady, the Porn Star Martini and the Dry Martini.
Follow #ClassicsWithATwist_Iberica on social media and keep an eye out for our new cocktail of the week, announced every Wednesday.
Dry Fino Martini (12th April -18th April)
The classic of all classics, the dry martini is a cocktail with a gin base and a touch of dry vermouth. Our Iberica version, uses an authentic Mediterranean gin; “Gin Mare” and we swap the dry vermouth for fine sherry from Tio Pepe. We flavour the sherry with cardamom, juniper berries and rosemary. Our Dry Fino Martini is available in all our restaurants until 18th April for £8.90.
Lady in Pink (5th April -11th April)
The “White Lady” is a cocktail that has evolved. She started out with white mint Cream as her base (London’s Circo Club 1919) and then The Savoy changed this to gin. To continue this evolutionary journey, we are using a base of Spanish Puerto de Indias strawberry gin, resulting in a drink with notes of citrus and sweet strawberry. Our Lady in Pink is available in all our restaurants until 11th April for just £8.90.
Superstar Martini (29th March -4th April)
Originally created in Australia, the Porn Star Martini first burst out onto the London cocktail scene 15 years ago. Its name comes from the passion fruit, which is known to have aphrodisiac qualities. Our Superstar Martini is a version of this classic in which the ingredients adopt new textures and we use Spanish cava. You’ll be seduced by the passion fruit foam and smooth vanilla touch. Available in all our restaurants at the special price of £8.90, until the 4th April.
Espartero Cocktail (22nd March -28th March)
This is our version of the classic “Blood & Sand” cocktail. The Blood & Sand recipe first appeared in the Savoy cocktail book in the 1930s. It was named after Rudolph Valentino’s 1922 bullfighter movie Blood and Sand and inspired by the life of the most famous bullfighter of the 19th century: Manuel García Cuesta, known as ‘El Espartero’. Our version includes Lepanto, a Premium Spanish brandy, as well as vermouth, Amontillado Sherry and orange juice; all mixed with Scotch whisky. It is available in all our restaurants at the special price of £8.90 until 28th March.
