The Bletchley, a London-based codebreaking WW2-inspired bar, has a cocktail that costs R1,662 (£100). It’s called King George VI and its gin-based.
"The recipe is coming from Montgomery Collins who was a British Air Force soldier during the Second World War and went to Germany to help them to rebuild everything back once the war was finished. Lanique is a Polish liqueur and the Chambord is French. Those two were helping England during the war," said Bar manager David Ammar.
How it's made:
Three different liqueurs are used for the mix: Monkey 47 (gin), Lanique (rose vodka), and Chambord (raspberry liqueur.)
The mix is completed with fresh lemon juice and bitter lemon and infused with hibiscus tea, berries, lemon and orange peel.
The infusion is chilled using dry ice and topped up with mascarpone foam, gold chocolates, edible diamonds, and caramel.
It’s finished with gold leaves and sprinkles of gold.
Guests also get a sparkling wine bomb made with an English garden jelly and a garnish of French toasts, Polish pancakes, chocolates, and lollipops.
