As a pop-up, the Candlelight Club features a limited range of cocktails each time, but the menu is constantly shifting. In addition to our two signature cocktails, here are the temporary drinks from our most recent events.

 

HOUSE COCKTAILS

Candlelight Club Manhattan

BOURBON, SWEET AND DRY VERMOUTHS, HOUSE-MADE HICKORY-SMOKED BITTERS, MARASCHINO

As venerable as the Martini, the Manhattan has many origin stories but certainly existed by the 1880s. Our version blends red and white vermouths, a dash of sweet maraschino and subtle smokiness (bottle aged)

 

Salted Caramel Old Fashioned

Bourbon, chocolate bitters, caramel syrup, pinch of sea salt

An Old Fashioned—whiskey, sugar, bitters—is a drink from the dawn of cocktails.
Ours deepens the flavour with chocolate, caramel and a whisper of salt (bottle aged)

 

drinks from our Sakura in Old Tokyo party on 6th & 7th April 2018:

Sakura Fizz

Sake, Luxardo Sangue Morlacco, Thomas Henry cherry blossom tonic, Lemongrass 

A celebration of the cherry blossom festival. Sangue Morlacco is an Italian cherry liqueur that was given its name ("blood of the Morlaccos", warriors who defended Venice against the Turks) by the poet Gabriele D'Annunzio in 1919 because of its deep red colour

 

Hanami Royale

Gin, lychee, rose syrup, lime juice garnished with edible flowers

A floral drink named after hanami, the Japanese tradition of appreciating the short-lived cherry blossom, sometimes at organised parties

 

Under the Ume Tree

Brandy, plum wine, Luxardo Maraschino, vanilla, prosecco, garnished with cherry blossom

The ume is a type of Japanese plum which is made into wine. The tree's blossom is also enjoyed at this time of year

Named after the most romantic of train routes, whisking you east in luxury through Paris, Venice and Istanbul

Candlelight Mule

Stolichnaya vodka, ginger beer, lime juice, bitters

A twist on the classic vodka cocktail the Moscow Mule—which was actually invented in 1940s America
when two salesmen got talking, one of them trying to sell vodka and the other trying to sell ginger beer. We serve the drink in the traditional copper mug. Why a copper mug? The story goes that one of the salesmen's sister had inherited a copper goods business and had a stack of mugs she couldn't get rid of… Even though the whole thing was the result of expediency, the Moscow Mule is today on of the most popular drinks in the US

 

Tolstoy Tipple

Prosecco, citrus-infused Stolichnaya vodka, cucumber syrup

An ice-cold shot of infused vodka, served with celebratory fizz and refreshing cucumber
