This September, Jumeirah Carlton Tower’s bar and restaurant, The Rib Room, has created a bespoke cocktail menu based on several locations in the Jumeirah Group portfolio.
From Dubai to Frankfurt, the eclectic menu perfectly pairs well-known Jumeirah destinations to fresh ingredients associated to each hotel.
For example, the ‘English Country Garden’ cocktail is inspired by the private gardens opposite Jumeirah Carlton Tower to which guests have exclusive residents access.
Similarly, the ‘Honey Bee’ cocktail is an ode to Jumeirah Frankfurt’s ‘Skyline Honey’ initiative whereby the hotel’s 28th floor rooftop apiary cultivates honey from a 40,000 strong honeybee community.
With six diverse destination focused cocktails on the menu so far, the Jumeirah cocktail menu is rapidly growing to accommodate the hotel group’s unprecedented plans for future growth. In the pipeline are special recipes inspired by hotels in China and Abu Dhabi.
The full list of cocktails on the inspiring menu can be found below:
• English Country Garden (London)
Inspired by the hotel’s exclusive access to the private gardens opposite the hotel, with notes of elderflower, Violette liqueur and Gin, the English Country Garden is topped up with Champagne Laurent-Perrier to finish
• Honey Bee (Germany)
Flown over from Jumeirah Frankfurt’s bee hives on the roof of the hotel, the Honey Bee cocktail includes custom-made honey created by the hotel’s resident Honeybees. With notes of Kummel and Benedictine, the Honey Bee is finished off with lemon and soda to create a refreshing and smooth taste
