Forbidden Fruit
The Dorchester of London cocktail was first created in the 1930's by world-renowned bartender Harry Craddock, who presided over The Bar at The Dorchester at the time. To commemorate the hotel's anniversary celebrations 80 years later, legendary Bar Manager Giuliano Morandin sought to recreate the cocktail from a recipe book first published in 1951. Staying true to the original recipe, Giuliano faced the challenge of recreating Forbidden Fruit, a liqueur unavailable for 60 years and now available exclusively at The Dorchester. The combination of dry gin, rum and forbidden fruit create this strong, yet refreshing cocktail with a citrus complex flavour.
