Those imaginaries at┬áBompas & Parr’s very own walk-in cloud bar Alcoholic Architecture have been at it again.
For Guy Fawkes Night and the subsequent weekend they’ll be┬áserving the Gunpowder Plot, a drink garnished with an explosion. Of course – what else?
The bar team has collaborated with special effects technicians and magicians to develop the smokey and unctuous cocktail. The aromatic explosion that finishes the drink is created through the same pyrotechnic powders that are used for epic stage shows where you can feel the heat at the back of the auditorium. The pyrotechnics further serve to unleash a fierce concoction of spices that delight the nose of the experienced alcoholist as the flames bind together all the flavours in the glass.
Aneila Prier, acting bar manager, commented: ‘I singed my eyebrows in the early testing of the cocktail but it was worth it for the flaming and apocalyptic spectacle visitors to the bar will be able to consume. If only Guy Fawkes had been as successful..!’
So, pyrotechnic cocktail lovers – what on earth are you waiting for?
