Her Majesty’s Secret Service (HMSS) in Clifton, Bristol is introducing a new British themed menu, taking the customers on a journey across Britain. From the White Cliffs of Dover & Eden Project to Sherwood Forest and the Loch Ness Monster, there’s a cocktail version of some of Britain’s favourite landmarks. There’s even a version of the classic British ice-cream, the Twister.
The cocktail menu at HMSS will be presented in the style of a vintage pocket edition travel guide, offering an assortment of highly interactive, humorous, playful and impeccably presented cocktails that are a far cry from the ordinary standard cocktail concoction. An array of unusual ingredients are infused with uniquely flavoured spirits to create a selection of innovative cocktails, each of which represents the wonders of Great Britain.
Examples from the menu include:
Green Manalishi (£8.50)
Barcardi Carta Blanca, Hemp Orgeat, Lime, Aloe Vera Oil, 1 Chip of Prehistoric Stone
Loch Ness Mobster (£8.50)
Patron Silver Tequila, Peach Wine, Lemon Juice, Absinthe, Laughing Gas
Grey Goose LaPoire, Mozart Strawberry, Kiwi Sherbet, Milk, Whole Egg White
Greenhouse Project (£9.00)
Sugar Snap Hendricks, Dry White Wine, Spear Asparagus, Celery Bitters
Situated on the doorstep of Clifton Down station, the 80-capacity bar’s interiors are classy but quirky. Expect vintage upholstered chesterfields, polished oak and gun cabinets.
