Take an Icelandic approach to the festive season with wonderfully warming cocktails at Texture – the Michelin-starred restaurant from Chef Patron Aggi Sverrisson. Served in the stunning Champagne bar, just moments away from Selfridges and the bustling shops of Bond Street, it’s the perfect way to escape the shoppers and indulge this Christmas.
Head Sommelier Cyrielle Mascaro has expertly crafted an exquisite collection of four winter cocktails, sure to take the edge off the bitter weather. Begin with an Apple Orchard martini – a quintessentially British blend of gin, apple juice, cucumber, elderflower syrup and heady calvados – before moving onto The Emperor with crisp Icelandic vodka, Mandarine Napoleon, Drambuie and zingy lime. Escape the cold and transport yourself to sunnier climes with a Spicy Sin made from Appleton 12-Year-Old Extra Rum, Martini Rosso, lime, ginger syrup and ginger ale, or savour a bold Warm Up with bourbon, spicy sugar syrup and bitters.
Whether taking a break from the search for the perfect present or adding a little sparkle to your pre-Christmas catch-ups, enjoy your chosen sips at the beautiful Champagne Bar. Icelandic trees adorned with twinkling hanging crystals, snow filled plant pots and frosted branches set in the windows have transformed the bar into an elegant winter hideaway. Perch high on a stool at the bar or sink into a sumptuous leather booth for a moment of true relaxation.
For the ultimate indulgence, enjoy tipples with friends at a private dinner alongside Aggi’s Michelin-starred dishes in the exclusive 16 cover private dining room, transformed into a beautiful winter white Icelandic forest. Imagine snowy moss-lined walls, sheepskin throws, ice-tipped branches, frosted mirrors, hanging glass pendants and sparkling crystals drops.
Take a moment for yourself and escape to a little Michelin magic this Christmas with winter cocktails at Texture.
