Salvatore Calabrese created the Our Generation menu at Donovan Bar at Brown’s Hotel, London

The Our Generation menu features cocktails inspired by musicians including Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones, supermodel Celia Hammond and artist Bridget Riley.

Calabrese said: “My bartending career began in the 1960s, whilst London photographer Terence Donovan’s career also blossomed. Inspired by Donovan’s work and the famous faces he photographed along the way, Our Generation celebrates my own memories and this special time in London’s history.”

Our Generation encompasses drinks inspired by stars from 1960s art, fashion, music and screen, and includes The Stamp, which was influenced by sixties film star Terence Stamp and is made with pisco redistilled green cardamom, Quaglia Liquore al Pino Mugo, blackberry syrup, fresh basil and lemon.

The menu also features the Sparkling Side of the Moon, which was inspired by rock band Pink Floyd and is described as a clarified punch made with Bulleit 10 Bourbon, Cognac, Grand Marnier, Fernet-Branca, passion berries, juniper, coriander, mint, chamomile and Champagne.
