Tony C and the boys have been beavering away in the Lab upstairs coming up with new menu ideas with brand new drinks and some of Tonys past repertoire refined and perfected.
Tony will be showcasing the Lipstick Rose around Valentines Day. Here are a few nuggets of what goes into the creating of such a drink …

“Perfume fascinates me and one of my favourite perfumers is a man called Ralf Schwieger. Schwieger worked with YSL on his Baby Doll scent and later for the perfumer Frederic Malle. He created a marvellous perfume with Malle called Lipstick Rose. It's pure Betty Paige: grandstanding 1940's glamour and lashings of red lipstick.

Here I’ve taken the scents from the perfume and translated them into food grade essences, so it smells as though your drinking the perfume, yet the drink has a floral fruity taste that is all it's own.

I’ve based it around rose vodka: you can buy this online or in specialist off-liscences. or make your own by soaking rose petals in vodka. I made my own lipstick garnish as a joke. Normally you would refuse a drink with a lipstick smear.”
