Turkish Delight Martini Made With Lanique – Love Drinks

Turkish Delight Martini Made With Lanique

Feb 21st, 2018

We found this little gem down by the seaside – a Turkish Delight Martini made with Lanique –  in the Woodlandia installation at Patterns in Brighton, part of the Mothership, the bar and events group.

Created by head bartender of the Mothership Group, Chris McGoven, the drink contains Lanique, rose water, grenadine, vodka, chocolate liquor and chocolate bitters.   In addition to the Turkish Delight Martini, there are a number of other festival treats including a boozy hot chocolate menu and Hot Buttered Rum.

Here’s how to make it:

30ml Russian Standard Vodka
15ml Lanique Spirit Liqueur
15ml Giffard Crème de Cacao
15ml Lemon Juice
5ml Grenadine
2 Drops of Rose Water
Chocolate Bitters

Simply add all the ingredients and cubed ice to a Boston tin and shake for 20 seconds.  Double strain into a martini glass, to avoid ice crystals falling into the drink, and garnish with a lemon wheel and dust cocoa powder over the lemon and drink.

As you make your way to the entrance of Patterns, you step through a transformed mystical entrance, and discover an enchanted forest filled with nostalgic treats and immersive visual feasts inspired by Britain’s woodlands and the wild outdoors in Winter.

The ground floor bar has been transformed into a winter wonderland reminiscent of scenes from The Chronicles of Narnia, brought to life by a multi-level digitally projected and interlinked forest, complete with softly falling snowflakes, inquisitive wild animals and scents of the forest air.

Imagine watching the sunset from a discarded Chesterfield in Narnia with a warming cocktail in hand, dancing amongst the swirling snow in the glow of a Victorian lamppost and you will be half way to Woodlandia…
