Two Blushing Valentine's Day Cocktails

Scarlett O'Hara

The Scarlett O’Hara cocktail is a sweet and tart cocktail, perfect 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.

  • 25ml sugar syrup
  • 25ml Lemon juice
  • 25ml Bombay Sapphire
  • 25ml Chambord
  • Topped up with champagne

If you are joining us for Valentine's Day lunch or dinner, be sure to try one of these available on the special day.
