THE NEW COCKTAILS 2023
GRACE: Hi, can you introduce yourself and tell us about your new cocktail creation?
STEVEN: My name is Steven and I have been a bartender at GRACE Bar for 3 years. My new cocktail is the Afternoon Affair and it includes an infusion of gin and oolong tea, ODE – a citrus wine aperitif, amarena cherry juice, lemon, and egg white.
GRACE: What inspired you?
STEVEN: I didn’t have a direct inspiration, I like to try things out and with the help of my team who were willing to taste-test, the Afternoon Affair was created.
GRACE: How does the cocktail taste?
STEVEN: Sweet yet slightly tart, definitely a new taste experience in terms of flavor.
GRACE: What other Cocktail do you fancy?
STEVEN: I myself enjoy drinking a Negroni or Manhattan. I love strong, bitter drinks that also have a bit of sweetness to them.
- Oolong Gin – an infusion of gin and oolong tea
