Belvedere Merry Metropolitan
To toast the changing of the seasons our bar team have created a selection of luxury drinks. Our special cocktail menu will be available throughout the festive period and we’d recommend coming in to try it. To whet your appetite we’re revealing the secret to our Belvedere drink – The Merry Metropolitan.
This drink needs a bit of preparation; we filled a jar half full with raisins and a splash of sugar syrup before adding a bottle of Belvedere vodka. After three days of infusion we drained the vodka and bottled it – this resulted in a fruity vodka base with sweet raisin flavours.
Once we’d created the raisin infused vodka we shook 37.5ml with 50ml of white grape juice, 12.5ml of lemon juice, 12.5ml of Cointreau and a dash if orange bitters. The mix is then double strained into a chilled glass and garnished with a burnt orange zest.
