It has been a while since I've graced the terrace of the Sanderson Hotel, so I was excited at the prospect of seeing how they had transformed it for the launch of their Enchanted Hanging Garden. When we arrived, we were amazed by how some simple lighting and gorgeous flora and fauna displays and living walls really uplifted the space.
Given the partnership with Perrier-Jouët Champagne, we knew that fabulous champagne cocktails were going to be par for the course, and we weren't disappointed. A waiter provided us with a Champagne cocktail tray, bedecked with a variety of a handmade liqueurs and botanicals, so we could have a go at making our own bespoke cocktails. During our visit, we enjoyed the mixed berry liqueurs, pear and elderflower liqueurs, and the kaffir lime leaves and edible flowers.
My favourite combination was the addition of kaffir lime leaves to the Champagne, which was very fragrant and although it reminded me a bit of green curry, it was gorgeous. To accompany our Champagne cocktails, we had a selection of tempura bell rock oysters with watermelon, coriander & mint; butternut squash risotto balls with cumin spiced mayonnaise; and salt baked beets with goat’s curd.
If you're looking for a great place to have a stylish after-work cocktail in the West End, then we definitely recommend that you head here for a Champagne cocktail or two.
The Enchanted Hanging Garden runs until Jan 2017.
