The superb bar team at The Lobby Lounge innovates once again.
In Greek Mythology, Iris is the personification and goddess of the rainbow, what the name is inspired by. Candy floss is one of the exciting ingredients and, like Iris, the cocktail will transform its colours as the ingredients are gently mixed together.
Iris Cocktail combines butterfly pea tea-infused ImaGination gin with vermouth and lemon juice.
Accompanied by a delicate and delicious macaron.
