Featuring a strong and diverse selection of contemporary flavours including, balsamic vinegar, root beer, matcha green tea powder and mascarpone foam
This week sees cocktail bar group Dirty Martini launch a brand new cocktail menu, filled with trend-focused flavours and innovative combinations.
The new menu features six brand new Martinis, an indulgent collection of Distinctively Dirty serves and a mouth-watering selection of fresh cocktails named Dirty Dozen. The new offering sees Dirty Martini continue to explore fresh and exotic ingredients, such as; almond milk, mascarpone foam, balsamic vinegar, matcha green tea powder, root beer and Peroni.
Within the new range of Martinis is the fresh and elegant Spring Peach and Hibiscus Martini, which pairs Absolut Blue Vodka, Peach Schnapps and Thé Vert Hibiscus with coconut water, grapefruit bitters, peach bitters, lemon juice and Gomme Syrup. The unique garnish is a preserved hibiscus flower, positioned at the base of the Martini glass.
The Chai Pear Martini offers a winter feel to the new range of Martinis, combining Absolut Blue Vodka, Monin Chai Tea Syrup, Fresh lime and pear juice, Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur and demerara Gomme syrup.
The Distinctively Dirty range looks to break boundaries within the cocktail sphere. The Cheek to Cheek uses balsamic vinegar, Acai berry juice with Bacardi Carta Blanca Rum, Manzanilla Sherry, honey and fresh blackberries and raspberries, topped with a generous helping of delicious mascarpone foam.
The new and exciting Latina Caramella, follows the rising trend of beer within cocktails as Peroni Nastro Azzurro is mixed with Absolut Vanilla Vodka, Jack Daniels Honey Whiskey Liqueur, apple juice, Monin Caramel syrup, Gomme Syrup and Angostura Bitters. The drink is served in a Copper Collins and is garnished with a sesame snap, carefully placed across the rim.
The rich and sweet Big Chivowski, is Dirty Martini’s take on a White Russian, and is inspired by the classic film Big Lebowski. Dirty Martini’s twist on this classic uses Chivas Regal 12yr Scotch Whiskey, as opposed to Vodka, with Kahlua Coffee Liqueur and Monin caramel syrup with Mozart White Liqueur, almond milk, barrel aged bitters and is topped off with a sprinkling of butterscotch candy.
The Dirty Dozen is a collection of Dirty Martini’s much-loved serves from past and present menus. These cocktails are perfect for every night of the week and will be included in Dirty Martini’s famous happy hour, alongside the Martinis.
Within the Dirty Dozen is the fresh and zingy Raspberry and Ginger Smash; combining Tanqueray Gin, Bold London Spirit, cranberry juice, fresh lemon juice, homemade Gomme syrup, fresh ginger and raspberries.
The beautiful Green Monk, contains premium Teapigs matcha green tea powder along with La Dia Blada Pisco, Green Chartreuse, fresh lemon juice, Agave nectar, almond milk, egg white and fresh mint, to create a striking, bold and delicious cocktail.
Tom Cole, Product and Innovation Manager at Dirty Martini comments, “I’m incredibly excited to reveal the new Dirty Martini cocktail menu; I am certain it is one that cocktail lovers across London, and Cardiff, will really enjoy. I’ve spent the last few months travelling to different corners of the world to find the latest on-trend flavours and ingredients, and I believe this menu justifies the popular tastes of the moment.”
