Lyaness to launch new cocktail menu

Award-winning bar Lyaness in London will release its new cocktail menu next week: 3.0 Cookbook.

Lyaness was founded by acclaimed bartender Ryan Chetiyawardana, aka Mr Lyan. The new menu will go live on 5 March.

The 3.0 Cookbook menu comprises 15 drinks, designed to deliver a ‘stripped-back’ approach to cocktails, while retaining flavour and combining this with storytelling.

Chetiywardana said: “Lyaness has always been where we want to push things – for ourselves, but also for our guests and the industry as a whole.

“We did some very grand menus in the build-up to this, and we wanted to strip back and focus on something that’s inherent to the food world, but often misunderstood, or hazily embraced, and that was simply ‘flavour’.

“We also wanted to give insight to why we seek out the stories we do, and why we focused on bespoke ingredients within Lyaness. With this final cookbook menu, we’re taking guests behind the curtain of the way we make things the way we do, but also how important bars, people and flavour are to socialising in more interesting ways.

“This menu is a great insight into the heart of our #HeapsMadShit philosophy.”

Cocktail examples from the new menu include Forbidden Cola, which pays homage to sugary childhood breakfast cereals. It infuses Kellogg’s liquor with Rabbit Hole Bourbon, ‘magazake’, citrus zest and soda.

Other options include the Kentakki Fried Cocktail, inspired by the Japanese tradition of gathering around a KFC bucket at Christmas. It mixes The Macallan 12 Double Cask, sansho, togarashi, kombu, spices and citrus, and is described as a cross between an Old Fashioned and a Whisky Sour.
