Burlock debuts new cocktail menu

London rum bar Burlock has launched a seasonal menu, complete with 18 signature cocktails.

Culebra Colada

The bar is hidden underground on Mayfair’s Duke Street and is styled on a 1930s Havana rum room. It’s home to more than 200 rum brands, with the likes of El Dorado, Doorly’s and Planteray all stocked on its shelves.

The new menu marks the bar’s first change in seven years and aims to take guests on a ‘unique rum journey’ where serves are made by mixing some of the world’s best rums with the team’s house-made syrups and mixes, each with a sustainable, low-waste ethos.

For starters, there’s a Fish House Old Fashioned (a combination of Planteray Xaymaca, Courvoisier VS and peach brandy, dusted with spice) that brings the bar’s signature punch together with the classic cocktail. It is described by the team as an ‘old-school sipper, all the way from 1915 Havana’.

Another standout is Krakatoan Cloud – a frosty, cloudy creation of Mozart White Chocolate, Damoiseau Guava, Clément Coconut and Torabhaig whisky.

Other notable serves include two twists on a Piña Colada, as well Mai Tais and Daiquiris where guests can choose their own rum and flavour. Large groups can turn the drinks into large punch bowls.

Elsewhere, the Jungle Bird sees El Dorado 12 and Dolce Vita Aperitivo mixed with fresh pineapple, citrus and peels, while coffee fans can opt for Rev Lover, which combines Black Tears Cuban Spice with vermouth, coffee, and Espelette.

In addition, there are also cocktails that swerve rum: The Fonesca (a take on a Manhattan); The Grog (Element 29 vodka shaken with grapefruit, lime, Bitter Truth Pimento Dram, house-spiced dairy mix and agave syrup); and a Gin Julep.

It seems to be new menu season in London right now with Ryan Chetiyawardana’s (aka Mr Lyan) Lyaness and Salvatore Calabrese’s Velvet Bar both freshening up their cocktail offerings recently.
