European-inspired Vesper is serious about cocktails, and its Contrast menu presents juxtaposed ideas and unifies them in cocktail form. Opposites such as Dirty/Clean feature ‘dirty’ London dry gin, fino sherry, lemon, passion fruit and charcoal and Young/Old is made with vodka, peanut, childhood favourite Milo, Tawny port, vanilla, apple and Tabasco. Some contrasts are historical, such as 1491/1492, or literary, such as Beauty & The Beast. More playful iterations come from Italian bar manager Federico Balzarini, whose Pizza/Pineapple is inspired by the controversial pizza topping, using Scotch, Chinato, oregano, pineapple, clarified tomato water and salt and pepper.
