Rocketman, burning out his fuse up here alone… oops, sorry, back to the present! We’re just uber excited for the release of the latest movie – also named Rocketman, if you hand’t guessed – starring the fabulous Taron Egerton and Richard Madden, Brits represent!
And, as a nod to the film fun, VIVI is calling all tiny dancers, island girls and, yep, rocket men too, for a limited-edition cocktail and bar bite pairing. You can tell everybody, that this is your favourite cocktail – see what we did there – because it contains the most delicious of ingredients that’d simply blow the socks, or electric boots, off anyone!
The cocktail, that is just as vibrant and vivacious as Elton, boasts a delectable pop of candy floss and ingredients inclusive of Havana Club 7-year-old rum, house-made lemon balm syrup, elderflower, lime, dried mint, orange and egg white. It’s outlandish, it’s eccentric and blimey does it taste good!
Now to get a little bit cheesy! Elton serves up a legendary grilled cheese offering each year at his post-Oscar’s AIDS Foundation Academy Award Party – of which we’ve still not received an invite, ugh – but you’ll be able to grab a slice of the action at VIVI as they serve up the cheese as a bar bite pairing with the cocktail. And, what’s more, VIVI will be donating 10% of all Rocketman cocktail sales to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, giving you just another incentive to try the cocktail that we imagine is way more than just a little bit tasty.
