World’s Best Bar – Artesian At The Langham London – Creates Commemorative Cocktail To Toast The Royal Birth

July 29, 2013 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Opened in 1865 as Europe’s first ‘Grand Hotel’, The Langham, London boasted Royal connections from the outset, as HRH The Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) presided over the official opening.

The Langham’s tradition for innovation continues and to celebrate the momentous occasion of the birth of HRH Prince of Cambridge,International Bartender of The Year Alex Kratena has created a Champagne cocktail for those wishing to raise a glass to toast the new Royal arrival. Kratena combines Tapatio tequila, cedar wood syrup, lemon juice and Peychaud’s bitters with Ruinart blanc de blancs to create an aromatic and light blend that is served in a coupe enveloped in scented blue crepe paper.

The ‘Royal Toast’ cocktail is priced at £16.50 and is served at Artesian until 22 August 2013.

With its name inspired by the 365-foot deep well under the hotel which originally supplied all the fresh water for the guests, Artesian is the glamorous David-Collins designed bar that has become watering hole and social hub for chic Londoners.

Artesian has received numerous accolades in the last two years. This year, Kratena received ‘Bar Personality of the Year Award’ by Imbibe Magazine. In 2012 Artesian was awarded the ‘Best European Bar’ trophy at the Cocktails and Spirit Awards, Paris; ‘The World’s Best Bar’ by Drinks International Magazine and ‘World’s Best Hotel Bar’ at the Spirited Awards 2012, Tales of Cocktail, New Orleans.
