Served in the Chesterfield’s Terrace Bar, a congenial and intimate bar with an exclusive club-like setting, the two exciting new drink menus have been carefully curated by the Chesterfield’s team of resident mixologists to be enjoyed by both guests of the hotel and non-resident visitors.

Adapting the techniques of molecular gastronomy, these cocktails utilize methods such as spherification (the process of shaping a liquid into spheres) and the creation of foams and airs to create new textures, flavor combinations and striking presentations – all of which turn the drinking experience into something truly spectacular.

Examples include the Eton Mess – an ice sphere that is hammered open to release vodka, cream and strawberry liqueur before mixing with strawberries and meringue – and the Sea Salt Air Margarita, comprising of tequila shaken with Cointreau and freshly squeezed lime juice with a salty foam topping.
