Tapas Revolution Shoreditch, the tapas bar from Spanish Chef Omar Allibhoy, has collaborated with the award winning Cocktail Trading Co to create a new cocktail menu of classics with a Spanish twist.
Joining forces for the first time, Tapas Revolution and The Cocktail Trading Co have created 10 new cocktails which have been added exclusively to the Shoreditch drinks list. The collaboration features classic cocktails with a Spanish touch, using an array of typically Spanish spirits, wines and ingredients including Larios gin, Cava, Pedro Ximénez, Spanish brandy Veterano, blood orange, paprika and chorizo.
Highlights from the new menu include; Blood Orange & Cherry Royal, a blend of Larios gin, blood orange, aguardiente de cerezas, pimento dram shaken with lemon and topped with Cava. The Basque Country Fizz, the inspiration for this cocktail came from Patxaran liquer, mixed with sloe berry gin and a touch of aniseed, fig and apricot sherry and bitter peach topped with crisp cava. For an after dinner pick-me-up Tapas Revolution will also be offering their Espresso Blanco Martini, made with Veterano brandy shaken with espresso, milk, dark chocolate liqueur, Kahlua and Frangelico.
