Sastrería Martínez creates new menu
Peruvian speakeasy bar Sastrería Martínez has unveiled its new cocktail menu, called Collectión 2023.
Located in the Miraflores neighbourhood of Lima, Peru, Sastrería Martínez takes inspiration from America’s Prohibition era and the HBO series Boardwalk Empire.
To reach the bar, guests must enter through the Martinez tailor shop.
The new menu, Collectión 2023, features 18 different drinks, all of which are said to ‘bring to life’ the theme of the bar, with each serve offering a twist on a classic cocktail.
Each drink is either presented in ‘magical tailored vessels’ or with a garnish that ‘celebrates the work of a tailor’.
The menu curation has been led by bar manager Diego Macedo and head bartender Daniel Rengifo, and collectively the Sastrería Martínez team has taken inspiration from classic serves from history, with the incorporation of Peruvian flavours.
Together they have used a number of different techniques and styles, and have collaborated with local farmers to support the city’s local markets.
The drinks list includes team favourite Mr. Martinez 2.0, made with Johnnie Walker Gold infused with cheesecake, blanco vermouth, thyme, bergamot, quinine and cacao mucilage.
Other native fruit species are included and celebrated in the menu, such as the Peruvian passion fruit tumbo, the Andes’ mint muña, and the large variety of corn from the Andes and Macambo, known as Choclo.
In addition to the list of signature drinks, the team has included a selection of non-alcoholic classics, made with the same style and techniques as the main menu.
Every drink is said to taste and looks like its alcoholic counterpart, as the team wanted to ensure all guests can experience ‘the real speakeasy vibe’ of the bar.
Sastrería Martínez was named as a top 10 regional nominee in the Best New International Cocktail Bar – Latin America & Caribbean (LATAM&C) category of this year’s Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards.
