At Plateau, throughout the month of May and June we will be celebrating all things spring in our #BlossomCity campaign. During this beautiful month we are collaborating with Castle Fine Art to present a series of original floral artworks by artists Nel Whatmore, Julia Ogden and Kelly Jane. Additionally, whilst these talented art is exhibited here our talented bar team will serve four creative cocktails inspired by the works:
Reasons to Be (Cucumber slice, Elderflower, Tanqueray gin, Lychee juice, Rocket leaves and Blue curacao). This cocktail was inspired by former Chelsea Flower Show award winner, Nel Whatmore’s poetry collection of the same name
Coquelicot Song (vodka infused poppy candy, lemon juice and egg white). Referring to classic French sweets flavoured with poppy, and inspired by Julia Ogden’s artworks, assistant bar manager Arnaud Guilbert felt a sense of nostalgia whilst studying her work, with memories of eating ‘bonbons aux coquelicots’ from Nemours in France as a child. This led him to infuse the vodka with the sweets and create the unique tasting Coquelicot Song.
Asian Trip (Vodka, Lychee liquor, Violette syrup and champagne and Rosemary Martin). This cocktail is inspired by both Kelly Jane and also Claude Monet’s most famous work ‘The Water Lilies’. Unable to use a real water lily flower, Arnaud has created his own for the cocktail using mint leaves and lychee fruit.
In addition to the artworks, we will also be adding herbal plants to the restaurant terrace which Arnaud will use in our own house-infused gin, and for cocktail decoration and flavouring, such as in the Rosemary Martini (Tanqueray gin infused with rosemary, basil, vanilla syrup, lime juice, apple juice, pineapple juice, salt and pepper).
