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.

As if that wasn’t heady enough for you, to accompany the floral inspired Martinis, Executive Pastry Chef Jack Smith, has extended the trend into the Mezzanine Bar by curating a sensory Dessert Menu that will rival the very best in London. Dishes consist of a deconstructed Lemon Meringue Pie, a
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.

Lest you feel you have over-indulged somewhat do remember that the #Blossomcity17 campaign will once again support The Gynaecological Cancer Fund’s Lady Garden Campaign, with £1 from each bill across the D&D group will be donated to the charity, so it’s all in a good cause.

Bufle: Launch of the Bubble-Waffle

SEEN has heard much of the phenomenon of the Asian Bubble-Waffle and thus was very keen to sample this Hong Kong import for herself. My guest and I found ourselves in a bright, buzzy bar/café with tables and plenty of counters and high stools. It’s in Rupert Street, between Soho and busy Leicester Square.

Arthur Hooper’s Weekend Brunch

SEEN has been a huge fan of Arthur Hooper’s since their May opening. It’s handily located close to Borough Market (where much of their ingredients are sourced), so it is with great delight that we hear weekend brunches are now on the menu too.
