If you haven’t caught Colin Field, head bartender of Hemingway at Hotel Ritz Paris, at 30,000 feet on Air France, next week you will have the chance to drink his cocktails at lower altitude. Much lower in fact, as he will be setting up at the Bar in the Connaught London, during a week-long residence from April 7 to April 13.

Colin will be joining Agostino Perrone, director of mixology for the Connaught Bar, to create a special drinks menu that brings together their individual styles.

There will be six cocktails in total, all priced at £17 ($28). Created especially for the week are:

Yellow Submarine Gin: sherry fino, Galliano L’Autentico, celery bitter, served on ice with cucumber.

The Pink Poire: pear vodka, freshly squeezed rhubarb juice, Suze French aperitif, freshly squeezed lemon juice, homemade almond syrup, champagne brut, served in a wine glass with an orange zest, dry pear slice and orange flower water spray.

Brought over from Paris by Colin:

Serendipity Calvados: apple juice, fresh mint, champagne brut, served tall with mint.

French 76 Vodka: freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar, champagne, served in a champagne flute with lemon zest.

Creations by Agostino:

Connaught Martini: gin or vodka, home blend dry vermouth, selection of tailor made bitters; cardamom, lavender, ginseng, liquorice, coriander seeds, ginger and vanilla, with lemon zest or olive.

Fluerissimo: Cognac, sugar cube, Peychaud’s Bitter, violet liquor, champagne brut, served in a champagne coupe, with rose petals and sugar diamond.

The Bar at the Connaught is open 4pm to 1am Monday to Saturday.
