Four special Martinis created by head Bartender Davide Arruci will be served with with mini-meringue kisses: Sour Cherry, Pistachio and Rose, Gin & Tonic and Raspberry.

The four martinis are: Cherry Kiss (a twist on the Aviation Gin) with Belvedere instead of gin, parfait d’amour liqueur and crème de mure. This accompanies the Sour Cherry meringue kiss. The French Kiss features vodka, fresh raspberries, pineapple juice and crème de framboise, along with the raspberry meringue kiss. The Classy Kiss boasts a mix of Hennessy VSOP, bergamot liqueur and grapefruit, topped up with Moët et Chandon champagne. This goes with the G & T meringue kiss. The Rose Kiss is a twist on the classic Mai Tai with Hennessy VOP, rose water, lychee juice, orgeat syrup and lemon juice served with the Pistachio and Rose meringue kiss.

Strawberry & Rose Pavlova, Beehive Meringues served on a Honey & Thyme Tart and finally a twist on the classic Peach Melba. In addition, guests will be wowed by a special installation made with The Meringue Girls’ signature meringue kisses and flowers, especially for the pop up.
