Valentine's Day Cocktails, Two Blushing L'Ortolan
The Scarlett O'Hara cocktail is a sweet and tart cocktail, perfect romantic cocktail for after dinner. Created in 1936 when the film 'Gone with the Wind' was released - full of passion and with a vibrant pink colour, this is a classic valentine's day cocktail.
The recipe is simple:
- 60ml Southern Comfort
- 15ml Lemon juice
- 90ml Cranberry juice
Special Number 10
This cocktail, created entirely by our talented barman Manos, is the epitome of romance!
A few weeks ago, a gentleman came in to say that he and his girlfriend had booking for the next day. He revealed he was going to propose on the evening after a special meal at L'Ortolan and wanted to request their favourite tipple on arrival, a Kir Royale. Manos, being the creative barman that he is, took it one step further by saying he would create a special recipe incorporating the elements of a Kir Royal, especially for them. Dining on table number 10, the 'Special Number 10' was born.
