Dean & Nancy on 22 is launching a bold new cocktail menu on 15 November with an ‘extra celestial’ theme.
Inspired by the limitless horizons of the universe, the ‘Above the Clouds’ cocktail menu, features 17 incredible creations – including Dean & Nancy’s first edible cocktail – named after cosmic experiences.
Journey to the moon with the Rocketman ($29), an edible cocktail shaped as an astronaut and served as an ice-cream. Haku Vodka is combined with MAPO lemon and fior di latte ice cream, violet liqueur, ginger, and vanilla before being layered into a white chocolate mould and presented in a cloud of smoke.
Alien on Holiday ($28) takes its cues from human fantasy and the notion of an Alien falling in love with Sydney after observing it from outer space. With notes of lime, kiwi, and pistachio, plus warmth from Hendrick’s Gin and Fino sherry,
this drink is fruity, and refreshing for the coming Sydney summer.
Dean & Nancy’s Space Taco ($29) is topped with a mini deep-fried tortilla shell. Patron Tequila has been infused with Old El Paso taco spice mix and combined with Mexican Nixta Liqueur (corn liquor), verjuice, burnt lime agave and Inferno Bitter to create a profile that mimics a delicious taco, albeit space style.
Served with an illuminated LED cube, Ray of Light ($28) takes inspiration from the light that passes through the dark ages of the universe before stars and galaxies form. The whiskey highball uses Michter’s Sour Mash Whiskey infused with condensed milk and combined with lulo fruit and lemon myrtle, to create a silky, sour, and fruity finish.
Meanwhile, White Clouds ($26), is Dean & Nancy’s twist on the Amaretto Sour but with velvety, coconut cream on top, to give a dream-like feeling of being ‘above the clouds’. Made of Amaretto Disaronno, Campari, coconut, orange and Peychaud’s Bitter, this elegant cocktail is designed to be the perfect after-dinner drink.
