The Bethnal Green bar's new Urban Legends & Their Uprising Tales menu will comprise six chapters and 24 cocktails
The menu will document the journey of the bar's new team while exploring the darker side of east London and the themes of wit, innovation and teamwork against the odds.
Led by bar manager Andrei Marcu, Urban Legends & Their Uprising Tales has been a collaboration of the whole bar team and tells a fictional story of how this new 'gang' was built through, 'illicit rum deals, spirit smuggling and ingredient hustling'. Illustrator Molly Rose has also created vibrant illustrations for each drink on the menu.
Alongside the bar's award-winning signature serves, other cocktails have been created with savoury notes and natural ingredients in mind. Ain't Being Easy Cheesy combines parmigiano with bourbon, mead and raisins, while the Corny Gimlet (pictured above) uses homemade corn liqueur to create depth alongside salty buttered gin and a splash of popcorn tea. Purple Hopper also comprises beetroot, white chocolate, cream and crème de menthe.
Imbibe particularly likes the sound of Cereal Wars (pictured below) – single-malt whisky, genever, malt cocoa and Aztec chocolate bitters.
