A speakeasy bar within St Martins Lane hotel, in the heart of Covent Garden, Blind Spot has launched a new ‘Spin the Globe’ cocktail menu.
Designed by St Martins Lane General Bar Manager, Wilfried Rique, the 24 new ‘Spin the Globe’ drinks available at Blind Spot are each inspired by locations from around the globe. These include the likes of New York, Sydney, Venice, Mumbai, Marrakech and more. Each inspired by the scents, flavours and histories of various global destinations, the drinks are also available alongside specially crafted regional bar snacks.
Here, the ‘Kyoto, Japan’ cocktail combines Nikka whisky from the barrel, almond syrup, rose water, yuzu juice, blackcurrant liqueur and wasabi, for instance.
