Specialty Cocktails to Honour The University Fellows
History of Time
Dedicated to one of the greatest physicists of our time – Stephen Hawking. This cocktail, based on a blend of whiskey and champagne, offers a sweet twist of honey notes, which are balanced out with angostura bitters. A feature tying the cocktail all together is the indulgent honey and whiskey foam, providing a unique way for our guests to pay homage to professor Hawking.
Life on Earth
Inspired by the renowned Cambridge University Fellow and natural historian Sir David Attenborough. “Life on Earth” creates a tasty blend of strong Element 29 Vodka, a touch of sweet banana syrup and indulgent honey-infused vermouth. To represent the famous biologist’s love for nature, the cocktail is topped with a hand-drawn bee.
A homage to Alan Turing, who was an esteemed mathematician and a Cambridge University Fellow. This signature drink balances the aromatic Toti Dark and light notes of White Rum. The tropical touches of pineapple, passion fruit and tiki bitters create a sweet and indulgent flavour, which is brought out even more by the unique finishing touch – a spray of absinth.
Many more signature cocktails are available for our guests to explore and indulge in.
