PRLog - Aug. 5, 2011 - One of London’s most stylish hotels, The Cavendish London has created a new cocktail, the Red Rosa, to mark the Art of Being British - a one-day street party celebrating all things British - and is challenging aspiring mixologists to create a cocktail of their own to complement it.
The lucky winner will enjoy a weekend’s stay in a Junior Suite, with complimentary afternoon tea and of course they’ll get to taste their creation along with hundreds of guests, as the cocktail will be featured on the hotel’s bar menu throughout September.

The Red Rosa has been inspired by Rosa Lewis, the celebrity chef of her time and the hotel’s most famous owner. The cocktail is made with freshly muddled strawberries, grenadine syrup, Cointreau and elderflower cordial. This refreshing beverage has been developed to tantalise the taste buds and transport you to the British countryside.
Warryn Lloyd, the hotel’s bartender says: “In line with the Art of Being British theme, I wanted to come up with a truly patriotic cocktail. This creation not only flies the flag for British produce but with its stunning shade of red, it wouldn’t look out of place on the Union Flag!”
Warryn and his team will be judging the competition entries: “I’m looking really forward to seeing the different ideas that people come up with,” says Warryn. “This is a really unique opportunity for the winner to see their cocktail being served to guests at the bar and of course they’ll get a complimentary cocktail for themselves.”
