Designed and scented by British scent mavericks Jo Loves, the snow globe at The Goring is the spot to capture the perfect winter selfie. Big enough for two people to step inside and equipped with vintage polaroid cameras for a memento to take away, you can get all the Winter Wonderland feels minus the tourist hoards.
Plus, we think that spending an evening enjoying the expertly crafted cocktails (paired with delicious nibbles) at The Goring Lounge bar is the very best way to catch up with a girlfriend this holiday season.
The Goring Cocktail Bar has an impressive selection of Champagnes, wines by the glass, and of course delicious cocktails. Led by Bar Manager Roberto Ferrero and his expert team of bartenders (who will shower you with compliments as you imbibe) the experience is elegant, festive and a perfect pick me up amidst the Christmas party rush.
We sampled some of the specialties including the Okawari, which is a refreshing combination of Yuzu, Akashi Tai Peach Soda and Mt Fuji Bitters. This wonderful cocktail, served in a traditional Japanese teacup, serves up authentic Japanese flavours in perfect harmony.
Next up, The Flower Duet. Served in a Champagne flute and combining Leblon Cachaça, Blueberry 7 Rose Silent Pool and Ayala Champagne, this delicate spritz pays homage The Goring’s secret garden and is a perfect cocktail for all year round.
Finally, we ended with The King’s Cure. While the cocktail does take inspiration from the restorative penicillin cocktail, this fireside sipping drink combines Goring 9 Years, Cacao Butter, Kin’s Ginger, honey, pink peppercorns that is so delicious it is definitely fit for a king. The perfect remedy for the winter blues.
