Creative Head Barman Carlo Pallone at Quarter Bar & Lounge is a cocktail-crafting genius – making everything from classic drinks such as the Old-Fashioned, to his latest masterpiece to celebrate the opening of The Shard – The Shard-Ini.
Appropriately named, The Shard-Ini takes customers to new heights with its watermelon and passion fruit flavours. For full details on how to make the cocktal, read on…
- Watermelon (middle part)
- Passion Fruit
- Lime Juice
- Sugar Syrup
- Passion Fruit Puree
- Passion Fruit Liquor
- Vanilla Infused Vodka
1) Crush the middle part of some watermelon into a glass
2) Crush passion fruit into the glass
3) Add a dash of lime juice
4) Add a dash of sugar syrup
5) Add a dash of passion fruit purée
6) … and passion fruit liquor
7) Add two shots of vanilla infused vodka (to make this insert a some vanilla pods into a bottle of vodka for 3-4 days)
9) Serve in a Martini glass…
If all this seams like far too much effort, head down to Quarter Bar & Lounge and Carlo will conjure one up for you… you will not be disappointed! Located just three minutes walk away from London Bridge Station, Quarter Bar & Lounge, next to London Bridge Hotel is the perfect stop off en-route from work (or to – on a bad day).
