Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren and Coco Chanel. No, we’re not talking about powerful women but, instead, fabulous cocktails on Hush Mayfair’s new ‘Icons’ menu. The menu, specially curated to turn back time to the golden age of fashion, is inspired by London Fashion Week and reflects the best of Hush’s light and delicate dishes. Plancha tiger prawns with chilli dressing and burnt lime, roasted tuna with pistachio crust, aubergine caviar and fennel salad, and fragrant sweet potato mash with seasoned wild mushrooms all feature on the menu to satisfy your palate, whilst (handily) leaving some room for dessert (a wickedly indulgent Mars Bar cheesecake).
Although the menu is impressive, Hush’s Icon cocktails are the real stars of the show. Four elegant cocktails pay homage to fashion’s most beloved figures. Created by Hush Mixologist William Solorzano, the combinations are fresh twists on well-loved classics, and tongue-in-cheek funny. From the extravagant ‘Elizabeth Taylor’, featuring eight ingredients in celebration of her eight marriages which comes served in a flamboyant pineapple drinking vessel, to the subtler Audrey Hepburn; a twist on the classic ‘Between the Sheets’. Italian Femme Fatale Sophia Loren is immortalised in a ballsy blend of gin shaken with sugar and lemon juice, topped with an Italian Primitivo red wine float and a dash of Peychaud Bitters. Whilst famed French fashion extraordinaire Coco Chanel is embodied by French vodka shaken with rose and lychee liqueur and topped with Luc Belaire rosé sparkling wine, reminiscent of the powdery, feminine notes of her classic Chanel No5 perfume.
Don’t panic, Hush’s Icons menu runs until the end of March, providing plenty of opportunity to get your fashion fix, long after the runways have closed.
The Hush ‘Icons’ Menu is available from the 15th February – 31st March at Hush Mayfair, with the three-course menu including an “Icons” cocktail of choice
