Savoring Sophistication: The Garden Room's Alcohol-Free Elixir Collection for Sober October


As autumn approaches, the chic and luxurious Garden Room at The Lanesborough is set to make a splash with a new collection of cocktails that cater to both the sober-curious and cocktail aficionados alike. Starting from October 1, 2023, The Garden Room will offer a selection of four meticulously crafted cocktails that perfectly mimic the intricate flavors of classic libations like Negroni and French 75. Designed by the talented mixologist Cesar Correia, these alcohol-free creations promise a delightful journey for the taste buds.

Among the signature mocktails on the menu is the "Garden 75," a sparkling and floral refresher that artfully combines Supasawa citrus, Gomme, and sparkling Jasmin tea, served elegantly in a classic Lanesborough crystal Champagne flute with a delicate floral garnish. It's a beverage that promises to bring a touch of elegance to any occasion.

For those who appreciate the bitterness of a Negroni, "Negroni Zero" is an alcohol-free spin on the Italian classic. This version blends Tanqueray 0.0, Martini Vibrante, Lyre’s Aperitif Rosso, Fluere Bitter, and a dash of oak smoke bitters. Served over ice in a classic tumbler and garnished with an orange flower, it's a sophisticated alternative to the traditional cocktail.

The "Passion Sunrise" offers a tropical escape in a glass, with silky notes of pineapple and passion fruit. This delightful creation combines passion fruit juice, pineapple juice, lime juice, and a hint of Grenadine for a beautiful sunrise effect. Served in a highball glass and garnished with physalis, it's a visually stunning and delicious option.

If you prefer something tangy and refreshing, the "Apple and Cranberry Sour" is sure to satisfy. This drink combines apple juice, cranberry juice, lime juice, and vanilla syrup, shaken and poured over ice. Covered with crushed ice and served with lime wedges, it's the perfect choice for those seeking a tangy, fruity experience.

Cesar Correia, Assistant Garden Room Manager, highlights the growing trend of non-alcoholic options in the beverage industry, saying, "Not drinking alcohol when out in a bar is no longer a taboo, and Sober October is certainly helping the industry to adapt to the increasing number of requests for non or low alcohol experiences."

The Garden Room at The Lanesborough provides an idyllic escape from the city's hustle and bustle, nestled amid lush greenery. With its outdoor cigar lounge and covered terrace, complete with a fireplace, heaters, and cozy blankets, guests can enjoy this oasis year-round.

Beyond its enticing mocktail offerings, The Garden Room presents an impressive selection of Cuban and pre-Castro cigars stored in a renowned walk-in humidor. The venue also boasts an array of cocktails, spirits, fine wines, and Champagnes, complemented by light dishes served late into the evening. For cognac connoisseurs, The Lanesborough Paradis offers a rare and exquisite collection of Cognacs and Armagnacs, some dating back to the 18th century.

The Library Bar at The Lanesborough joins the trend with an extensive non-alcoholic cocktail selection, ensuring that guests can revel in delightful flavors with or without alcohol. Head of Bars, Mickael Perron, notes, "We have a large, inclusive menu to allow guests the opportunity to enjoy their favorite cocktails with or without alcohol and constantly adding to our extensive list, to try."
