Thanks for the links, Rambo. Adding "martini" to the search gave me this and I grabbed a couple:
Did you read the reviews on those? Doesn't sound too promising.
Has anyone yet experienced the Beaufort bar located in the Savoy?
If not, I highly recommend it. The bar excludes an old world, art deco air and the service is smooth. Of course you would expect only the highest of standards in such a stupendously magnificent place. But what perhaps I enjoyed the most was the theatrical experience...
I have been booked to stay in the Nimb Hotel the week after Christmas, has anyone any feedback for the Nimb Bar? I have heard the are quite well known for their innovative cocktails from an ever changing menu. Reviews/comments would be much appreciated.
I have the grapefruit, cherry and peach bitters. Well, I also have the lemon bitters, but those are completely useless I find.
As for the others I enjoy a dash or two in a G&T. Peach bitters are needed for some cocktails like the Bicyclette and others. Cherry gets used quite often (as does peach) as an accent flavour in bitters-heavy drinks like an old fashioned or manhattan. Couple dashes of Angostura and a dash of cherry, or Fee Bros Old Fashioned or whiskey barrel aged bitters with a dash of peach to mix things up.
Their use depends on your tastes and how deep into cocktail history you want to go in terms of recipes that call for their use.
