The Savoy’s Character Cocktails: The Gold Rush, Charlie Chaplin
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.
The Gold Rush, Charlie Chaplin
Created by Aaron Jones and Lorenzo Antinori. Chaplin was not a big drinker but this cocktail is homage to the characters he played on the big screen and his contribution to cinema.
Popcorn-infused Woodford Reserve, Amaretto Disaronno, Vintage Van der Hum, lemon juice, pineapple juice, smoked maple syrup, egg white. Served in a 1920s Hamilton Pall Mall coupette and garnished with a touch of the cinematic.
Character Cocktails are available today in the Beaufort Bar at The Savoy, priced at £25 per drink.
