Throughout December, the Sofitel London St James hotel will be serving a seasonal afternoon tea and cocktails inspired by the fragrances of Penhaligon's. Head Bartender of the St James Bar has created four exclusive cocktails inspired by four best-selling Penhaligon’s scents; Endymion, Juniper Sling, Peoneve and Artemisia. The cocktails feature essential oils, spices and unusual liqueurs, and take key notes from the fragrances and transform them into very "quaffable tipples".
In addition, Head Chef, Vincent Ménager, has created a delightful scented afternoon tea featuring scones with rose scented jam, cardamom scented crème brûlée tartlets and pear mousse snow balls with violet flakes.
Sofitel London St James have also invited Penhaligon’s to decorate their lobby tree. Festooned with opera glasses, theatre masks, programmes and bottles of scent, the Penhaligon’s tree is a theatrical celebration of all things fragrant.
The bespoke cocktail and afternoon tea menu will be available at Sofitel London St James from the 28th of November 2012.
