Who knew you could drink a fragrance? I was very intrigued to see how a collaboration between mixologist and Hawksmoor Bar Manager Ali Reynolds and Geza Schoen, the nose behind the the Escentric Molecules 02 fragrances would come together.

Very impressively, the pairing works. And it works very well. The result were three new cocktails reflecting the notes of the fragrances of the new Escentric 02 and Molecule 02 fragrances.

The favourite of the room being ‘The Drydown’ – a classy cocktail mixed with Tabqueray Export shaken with Almdudler Cordial and Grapefruit zest.

The cocktail will be on the menu during the month of May at Hawksmoor Spitalfields.  Boys, don’t let the collaboration with a perfume put you off -this is definitely one for the Gin enthusiasts out there.
