Liverpool bar creates £2,500 cocktail

Liverpool’s Kingdom bar claims to have made the most expensive cocktail ever.

New general manager, James Santangeli, who took over in September has concocted the French-inspired cocktail that will set those brave enough to buy it back by £2,500.

Named ‘When Louis met Celine’, the cocktail comes with a surprise, designer handbag from the Celine Range after Kingdom collaborated with Cricket on Matthew Street to offer something different for loyal customers this Christmas.

Jay Santangeli, general manager of Kingdom, says: “We have teamed up with Cricket as they stand for everything that is stylish in our great city.

“We will be creating a display in the VIP area of the venue with the team from Cricket and have an event in the pipeline also for the end of the month to launch our new range of drinks.”

Kingdom is currently undergoing a radical transformation with a new general manager, new cocktail menu and will soon have a new-look venue with refurbishment work due to start.

Jay adds: “As we have now began to overhaul and chop and change a lot of our drinks menu through extensive research and customer focus groups we wanted to also bring the glamour back to nights out in the city.

“Over the past few years some great new venues have opened in Liverpool and the range of food and drink offerings has grown and grown.

“We have, though, through this lost some of the glamour that Liverpool was always known for. That’s where we are looking to sit with our new offering.”

The name of the cocktail is based on Louis, who discovered Mandarin Napoleon Liqueur.

All ingredients are French and they are: Remy Martin Coeur De Cognac, Grey Goose VX, Mandarin Napoleon Liqueur, Passion Fruit Liqueur, Lemon Juice, Sugar, Egg White, Dash of pure orange Juice, Ace of Spades Champagne and Garnished with Candied mandarin peel in a Cha Cha Sling glass.
