Summer Cocktails At L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon, London

Located in the cosmopolitan Covent Garden you will find the highly desirable L'Atelier restaurant, and elegant La Salon Bar. These credits to London are operated by the critically acclaimed French chief Joel Robuchon. La Salon bar is located on the top floor of L'Atelier; the bar is intimate, modern and stylish with a secluded outdoor terrace which can be found through the sweeping doors.

New for summer 2012, L’Atelier has been hard at work researching and exploring ways in which to give their beloved guests an original and exciting cocktail experience, that is unmatchable elsewhere. The 'secret' behind these new cocktails? Undeniable freshness, resulting from only the finest products used to make their drinks whilst offering a new twist on the much loved classics. With this in mind, We could not think of a better location to celebrate both the success of the London 2012 Olympic games and our London summer!

We would like to share with you all, three drinks from the brand new summer edition menu that sound absolutely divine!

The Aviation No.3
This drink originates from two different schools of thinking on the original Aviation recipe… hence the No.3! One recipe called for Violet Liqueur and the other recipe left it out. In honour of both of these
L’Atelier is using fresh blueberries to yield the drinks colour which the Violet liqueur would have, without taking away from the taste of the other recipe. The drink has all the wonderful characteristics that the Gin, Maraschino Liqueur and Lemon Juice originally intended the drink have. To enhance on these flavours the drink is topped with a Lemon foam which balances the drink perfectly with each sip.

Mai Tai
'Maita’i roa ae!' These were the words first said at Trader Vic’s in 1944 when our next drink was first created. In Polynesian the words mean The best, out of this world’ and that is how the Mai Tai got it’s name. Unfortunately due to the original rum being now unavailable,

L’Atelier are using a blend of three aged rums from around the world including the younger version of the original Wray & Nephew. Flor de Cana from Nicaragua, Bacardi 8 originally from Cuba but now based in Bermuda, and the original Jamaican Rum, Wray & Nephew over-proof. These three together with Orange Curacao, fresh Lime juice, Orgeat, and Angostura Bitters allow you to see why this drink has been so famous and popular for so long.

Aperol Sour
If you are looking for something to get your evening started, or a fan of Italian Aperitif, then L’Atelier Aperol Sour might just be your answer. L’Atelier uses a base of Aperol, Campari and Yellow Chartreuse shaken with fresh Lemon and Pink Grapefruit and a touch of egg white. The amazing freshness and balanced bitterness makes this the perfect summer aperitif.


Available from 12:00 – 22.30 (last order)
L’Atelier also offers guests an intimate selection of food, again made from the finest ingredients with a distinct taste that will leave you perfectly content. The food available consists of savouries with both Foie Gras baby burgers and crispy Langostine with Basil Pistou included on the menu, alongside a range of delectable desserts.
