Nine Lives, the neighbourhood bar in London Bridge founded by industry experts Allan Gage, Emma Hutchison and Tom Soden, has unveiled a new sustainability-focused cocktail menu.
The menu is said to be dedicated to a reduced carbon footprint due to the source of the ingredients. In addition to the new menu, LGBTQ+ artists Trinity Tristan and Tim Whiting will showcase their public artwork installation as an “ODE to liberty”, located on the cobbles of Holyrood street, directly in front of Nine Lives.
The artwork takes inspiration from heroine of the Industrial Revolution, Margaret Clap, who opened her home in the 18th Century as a safe haven for London’s persecuted and outlawed gay society.
The ingredients for the cocktails will be sourced from the Nine Lives’ garden and feature collection of signature cocktails, sharers and remixed classics. The bar will offer two sharing cocktails, including three variations of classic cocktails. Well known cocktails will be served in either their original form, a Nine Lives variation or a third version created by bartenders who have worked with the founders over the years.
These include the Kelross Daiquiri which is made of Ron Zacapa, Bramley apple juice and Hackney honey. The Kafe Kernal has Kuka Cold Brew Coffee, tonic water and popcorn while the Ephemeral features Somerset cider brandy, cherry, hazelnut, lemon and parsley.
