Newcastle’s very own 1920’s themed whisky bar, Babylon, has been entertaining locals and their guests in their lavish King Street Bar for a few years now.
But, with all the amazing whiskeys on offer, you’d be forgiven for not diving head first into their amazing cocktail menu.
So we thought it was our duty to lead you in the right direction and whet your whistle for your next visit or private cocktail party.
Here are five of our favourites.
Fairy Dust Daiquiri
This is one of Babylon’s signature cocktails and a favourite of all who visit the King Street Bar.
The Mixologists juice slices of watermelon and mix it together with lime, vanilla bean, Sexy Cat marshmallow liqueur and a good kick of El Dorado white rum. It’s topped with a burnt marshmallow and a lashing fairy floss.
Caramel Bliss Bomb
If you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth you can’t go past Babylon’s Caramel Bliss Bomb.
It’s a cheeky little mix of vanilla vodka, Irish cream and hazelnut liqueurs combined with caramelised popcorn syrup and fresh cream. They even rim the glass with caramelised popcorn so you’ll be forgiven for licking the glass. And trust us, you’ll want to.
This elegant little number looks a million dollars on the table. And we can confirm that it’s as tasty as it appears.
It’s made from a balanced combination of Ink gin, crème de violette, Bianco vermouth mix with fresh lime juice, orange bitters and egg whites.
Here’s on for the whiskey lovers who love a bit of a sweet overtone.
A rye whiskey blended with a combination of macadamia and chocolate liqueurs, chocolate bitters and garnished with a shard of chocolate at which is the perfect accompaniment to the giant flavours.
A good cocktail is all about balance, and the Patrice Rose at Babylon is the perfect example of this in action.
It’s citrus gin, hibiscus & pomegranate liqueurs, freshly squeezed lime juice mixed with egg whites and fairy floss. It’s all in the right spot when it hits and it’s sublime!
