The Edgbaston Boutique Hotel Designs and Creates a Signature Cocktail for Sir Matthew Bournes

Edgbaston boutique cocktail
The Edgbaston Boutique Hotel and Cocktail Lounge are proud to announce that this week and during the entire performance of Sir Matthew Bournes production of The Red Shoes until 11th February, The Hippodrome will be serving The Edgbaston’s signature and especially created cocktail¬†‘To Dance? To Live!
The cocktail designed by Luke Pearson Bar Manager of The Edgbaston, inspired by the productions glamorous vintage feel consists of
Laurent Perrier Champagne, French grape spirit infused with Golden Plum, Grape seed tincture and Red Poppy Paint.
Luke commented this is a cocktail that truly reflects the passion for dance humming through the dancers veins. “Why do you want to dance?”……”Why do you want to live?”

The cocktail has been designed around  the unique performance of The Red Shoes which is a ballet within a ballet, and on that basis The Edgbaston have created a grape within a grape cocktail. The glamorous setting of Paris and Monte Carlo meant The Edgbaston have chosen a plethora of exotic ingredients that would also not be out of place in the period the production relates to.

To celebrate the grape it of course all starts with Champagne, it’s delicious buttery Chardonnay notes are complimented by a distilled grape juice infused with french golden plum’s. At the heart of every grape is a drying grape seed tincture to prevent the drink from being overly sweet. Capturing the texture and intense colour of the red shoes, there is an edible red paint along the the inside of the flute which is flavoured with Red Poppy.

The Red Shoes, an intoxicating drama where life imitates art with fateful consequences, will dazzle your senses and break your heart and is reported to be Matthew Bournes finest achievement to date. Such is its success the performance will be returning to The Birmingham Hippodrome in July.
