Around the world in 80 cocktails

Mr Fogg’s bar in Mayfair has launched an ambitious Around the World in 80 Cocktails menu inspired by the travels of its namesake, Phileas Fogg.

The expansive list celebrates flavours from around the globe offering guests the chance to be armchair travellers and taste the world without moving.

Inspired by the adventures of Jules Verne’s protagonist, Phileas Fogg, in his 1873 novel Around the World in Eighty Days, the menu takes the form of a vintage map upon which the cocktail’s names are pinned.

The map is split into four flavour profiles relating to different parts of the world: Spicy Aromatic Exotic; Sweet Fruity Sharp; Woody Rich Bitter and Fresh Light Delicate.

Imbibers can narrow their search further by choosing between gin, vodka, rum, whisky, Tequila and brandy-based cocktails, allowing them to pinpoint a specific location on the map that suits their palate.

All of the 80 cocktails come with an anecdote written in the style of Phileas Fogg.
