Commencing with an introduction to this beloved cocktail, our Bar Manager, Sahbi, will begin by explaining the history and origins of the martini. You will learn a little bit about his own background and discover his top tips to make the perfect martini yourself. There will then be the opportunity to taste the magnificent martini creations, curated using homemade syrups, and enjoy a selection of delicate, seasonal canapés created by the talented Head Chef, David.

Price: £50 per person | £100 for two people
