Where to Toast to the Coronation in London and Bristol
Introducing The Doyle Collection’s ‘Gardens of England’ cocktail menu
Introducing The Doyle Collection’s ‘Gardens of England’ cocktail menu — a series of sips inspired by the two things King Charles III is most passionate about: sustainability and the ‘best of British’ produce.
Savour them at our UK hotel bars this May to celebrate the royal coronation and raise a glass to the King and Queen.
The Kensington, London
If you’re planning to visit the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea for the coronation weekend, then be sure to stop at The K Bar at The Kensington who will be delighting guests with their ‘Cornish Garden’ cocktail.
This citrusy concoction features a trio of quintessentially British spirits and wines, including Pimm’s, Rathfinny Estate, and Aval Dor Gin, alongside Bar Manager, Adrian Parrondo’s homemade Earl Grey Cordial; find the full recipe here to enjoy it at home.
Cornish Garden, £16
The Bloomsbury, London
The Coral Room at The Bloomsbury will be toasting to the King’s favourite tipple – whiskey — with their royal take on an espresso martini. Made with Laphroaig 10-year single malt Scotch, pure British honey, and cocktail connoisseur, Gio Spezziga’s homemade coffee kombucha, this sweet and smoky concoction is the perfect digestif to enjoy after a sumptuous dinner at Dalloway Terrace.
Find out how to repurpose your leftover coffee grinds and recreate our coffee kombucha at home.
