Eurostar unveils new cocktail menu for Premier passengers

Eurostar will be treating Business Premier passengers to a new range of winter cocktails to enjoy whilst relaxing in the Paris lounge.

Designed by the London Cocktail Club, the bespoke cocktails encapsulate Eurostar’s heritage, reminiscent of both British and French cultures.

Featuring a range of French spirits such as pastis and Côtes de Provence rosé and typical British ingredients such as cucumber juice and fresh rosemary, the drinks are sure to suit tastes on either side of the Channel.

JJ Goodman, London Cocktail Club founder, said: “Taking inspiration from both sides of the Channel, we’ve used the best British and French spirits to give a few classic cocktails a twist.

“And for those who fancy something simple yet satisfying, we’ve crafted a selection of perfectly paired, marvellously moreish G&Ts.”

For those looking for something a little lighter, Michelin star chef and Eurostar Business Premier culinary director, Raymond Blanc, has designed two non-alcoholic cocktails.

Named the Mellow Mojito and The Zester, the drinks are a virgin take on the Cuban classic and the spritz.

These drinks are a welcome addition to the menu, which currently features Eurostar’s signature cocktail, Angelique.

The tipple contains Eurostar’s very own gin, Toujours 21, which was designed by Blanc and created by Silent Pool Distillers.

Blanc said: “When designing the gin, my vision was to take travellers on a journey of taste that played upon the blend of the British and the French countryside.

“The aromatic notes of lavender are a nod to Eurostar’s Provencal destination, while the delicate taste of the angelica evokes memories of the British landscape.

“And, just as all our Business Premier meals contain local ingredients, so does our gin as it features honey made from bees housed at Eurostar’s maintenance depot in Kent.”
