A tribute to a pair of our regular guests who are utterly different, yet the very best of friends.
This cocktail is inspired by a foundation of the bar - the guests. It is based on a story of 2 guests that are completely different but the best of friends; one in fashion with a love of strong drinks like negroni, the other a quieter soul with a love of fine food and sweeter drinks, his favourite being golden Cadillac.
This drink is a tribute to them and although they are completely different the drink fuses/ harmonises both their lives with the bitterness of negroni and sweetness of the golden Cadillac - with a chocolate ring being element of connection. The ice is also a half diamond half sphere.
