Created by Rich Woods, head of cocktail and spirit development, the Drink Your Greens menu features 10 drinks with a vegetable twist.

The menu includes an Artichoke Negroni, made with Bombay Sapphire Gin, Campari, Martini Vermouth blend and artichoke distillate; and a Martini-style Green Gimlet, a combination of Fords Gin, tomato vine and green leaf distillate, and ‘green’ cordial.

Also on the menu is a Red Pepper Spritz, made with Russian Standard Vodka, blanched red pepper skin, Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth, red pepper cordial and topped with Prosecco.

“The mighty vegetable is long overlooked as a more than suitable replacement to fruit in many a classic cocktail,” said Woods.

“Naturally sweet, nourishing and enriching – not to mention they are damn tasty. For National Vegetarian Week I wanted to celebrate all that is great about some of our loved (and not so loved) garden particulars and shine a light on their versatility in some of my favourite alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails.”

In addition to the cocktails, the sky-high bar and restaurant has created a curried cauliflower waffle, topped with tamarind, paneer, pickled dates and curried scraps.

The Drink Your Greens menu is available during National Vegetarian Week (14-20 May).
