THIS LONDON COCKTAIL BAR HAS CREATED A COCKTAIL FOR EACH HOROSCOPE AHEAD OF THE SUMMER SOLSTICE
Drink a Cocktail Custom-Made for Your Star Sign in Barts’ Secret Garden
To commemorate the 2019 Summer Solstice (or longest day of the year) occurring on 21st June, Barts speakeasy has developed a menu of 12 unique cocktails that represent the different horoscopes. The special menu will run from 21st June through to the end of the summer and each star sign is represented in the perfect cocktail for their key characteristics and personality traits. For example, Cancers, known for being indecisive, can sip on a three-layered cocktail, where identifying the three different flavours will be a challenge sure to satisfy their curiosity and reluctance to select just one flavour in a drink. Guests visiting Uncle Barts apartment on Friday 21st June can also receive an exclusive Tarot Card Reading whilst sipping on their tailor-made cocktails, to be fully prepared for what is in store for their horoscope this summer.
In the Northern Hemisphere, 21st June will be the longest day of the year – the summer solstice. The zodiac signs in Western astrology are determined by the position of the sun on the day of your birth, which means the solstice is an important event when it comes to horoscopes and it also means different things are in store for each star sign. For astrology aficionados and those who know nothing about their horoscope nature alike, Barts is the perfect place to sip on cocktails outside and enjoy the longest day of the year, whilst perhaps learning a thing or two and having your tarot cards read to see what is in store for you this year.
Other cocktails on this special menu include Taurus, which reflects the sensible and practical aspects of the bull star sign, incorporating aquafaba and baobab in a simple yet unique drink with, sensibly, just a touch of zero-calorie stevia. Virgo combines fresh basil and pineapple in a delicious, fresh and potent combination. The drink comes served in a clay vessel, ensuring that this earth sign feels right at home at the Barts apartment.
When it comes to Leos, Barts will roll out the red carpet, as, the horoscope royalty has arrived and everyone must know it. With orange-infused cognac liqueur, champagne and edible gold glitter (lots of gold), this theatrical and often dramatic sign will feel satisfied with a cocktail to match their true personality. Geminis are adaptable and flexible, but they also have two elements to them, like this drink which covers all your taste buds; sweet, sour, bitter, salty and even umami can be tasted in this libation. Gemini is the twin sign and fortune comes to them in pairs. This cocktail is served with an ‘edible dust’ version of itself on the outside of the glass – echoing the flavours of the liquid cocktail inside the glass.
Guests looking for a cocktail created to suit their star sign should head to Barts this summer to see if the mixologists have hit the nail on the head when it comes to summing them up in a refreshing drink.
