This is the world’s first edible cocktail menu, and it’s made up of 12 different gummy bears served in a candy bag. We don’t expect any less from Tippling Club. They’ve toyed with our senses previously with their Sensorium Menu, where diners were invited to sniff relatable scents to suss out their preferred cocktail.
But this takes the drinking experience to a whole ‘nother level. The gummy bears are presented in a retro candy shop bag that comes smelling like an English confectionary store. We’re already sold because really, where else can you get a drinks menu that lets you experiment with 12 different gummy bears?
The menu takes upon the theme of Dreams and Desires, and features 12 new cocktails that represent our everyday ambitions. Lots of hard work and effort have gone into crafting these 12 new cocktails and 12 gummy bears – Tippling Club’s Head Bartender Joe Schofield explained it took months of research before narrowing it to “12 perfected flavour formulas that we felt best represent the dreams and desires we wanted to convey”. Since Joe Schofield joined in 2016, Tippling Club has joined the highly acclaimed list of the World’s 50 Best Bars in 2017.
When you get cocktails with names like Happiness – a honeyed drink that has elements of yuzu, lemon, orange and is spiked with tequila, or Peace – a soothing concoction of almond milk, citrus, lemon balm, and vodka, you know you’re in good hands.
For those who have adrenalin-spurred dreams and desires, you can try Revenge – caraway with vodka (and blood…?), or even SuperCar which is white wine, butter, citus, gin and petrol.
Oh and if you order Baby: the gummy bear has the pleasant tasting notes of vanilla and milk, and the cocktail’s essentially dairy, a dash of apricot, honey, and citrus with gin – but it comes in a baby bottle. Maybe not the best drink for a first date, but it’ll definitely break any awkward silences. Each cocktail looks like it’s worth a try, if not for the unique fusion of flavours and edible garnishes (think angostura-soaked paper, cherry sorbet lipstick, and a passionfruit “acid” tab).
The Dreams and Desires cocktail menu is now available exclusively at Tippling Club from Monday to Saturday throughout lunch, dinner and bar service hours, with each cocktail priced at $24++.
