Mondays don’t to always be gym and washing night, they can be Martini night. Yep, Brasserie Max at Covent Garden Hotel have teamed up with Chase Distillery (Britain’s first Single – Estate distillery) to launch Martini Mondays, a night to celebrate the much-loved classic cocktail.
The classes will be hosted by Fred Barton or James Chase from Chase Distillery who will give a history lesson about the martini and will tell you the story about the family-run Chase Distillery, of course it’ll be over a cocktail or two, this isn’t school.
Six martinis have been especially created for the martini masterclasses all based around the senses. These include The Pink, made using Chase Pink Grapefruit gin, with floral and citrus undertones, perfectly balanced with Brasserie Max’s homemade Champagne rose cordial, and Dirty and Chilli, made using Smoked Chase vodka, Fino Xeco sherry, olive brine and Habanero chilli tincture which was inspired by a trip to Mexico, where Brasserie Max’s bartenders filled their backpacks with Habaneros to create this superb, smoky, spicy, chilli martini.
Martini Mondays with Chase Distillery launch tonight (16th April) and run every Monday until the 7th May.
