The Savoy’s Character Cocktails: Coco, Coco Chanel
In 2013, one year after The Savoy opened its Beaufort Bar, Chris Moore introduced his ‘Character Cocktails’, creations inspired by some of The Savoy’s most famous guests.
Character Cocktails introduce a touch of theatre to the already dramatic surroundings of the Beaufort Bar at The Savoy. Four new cocktail creations pay tribute to four of the many famous personalities to have stayed at The Savoy; Ernest Hemingway, Coco Chanel, Charlie Chaplin and Frank Sinatra.
Each cocktail has been created in a collaborative effort by the award-winning team of mixologists at the Beaufort Bar. Adding an element of surprise and intrigue to the service, the cocktails are served in era-specific vintage glassware and are garnished tableside, in front of the guest, to reflect the inspiration behind the drink.
Coco, Coco Chanel
Created by Chris Moore and Fabrizio Fiorito. Coco changed the course of fashion history and she also loved to drink. She was known for believing that red wine and caviar would keep her young. Champagne was also a favourite tipple.
Grey Goose infused with rose and jasmine, Lillet Blanc, Red Wine and Blackberry Reduction, Moët & Chandon 2004. Served in an 1890s wine glass and garnished with jasmine and rose tea spray and black sugar pearls presented in a small caviar tin.
Character Cocktails are available today in the Beaufort Bar at The Savoy, priced at £25 per drink.
