World’s first edible cocktail menu launched

The ever-innovative Tippling Club restaurant in Singapore has launched what it claims to be the world’s first edible cocktail menu based around dreams and desires.

The Tippling Club’s new edible cocktail menu takes the form of a dozen gummy bears presented in a retro candy bag

Masterminded by head bartender Joe Schofield and chef-owner Ryan Clift, guests are presented with a dozen gummy bears in a green-and-white striped candy bag.

The sweets correspond to the 12 different cocktails on the restaurant’s new ‘Dreams and Desires’ list, each mirroring the taste of a specific cocktail.

“With the first ‘Sensorium’ menu we looked to the past, using relatable scents to trigger memories of yesteryear. This time round we have our sights set on the future, by evoking our innermost dreams and desires through taste,” Schofield said.

“The edible gummy bear menu, while deceptively simple, involved months of research and development before we narrowed it down to 12 perfected flavour formulas we felt best represent the dreams and desires we wanted to convey,” he added.

Taking inspiration to some extent from the seven deadly sins, among the cocktails on the menu are ‘Lust’, ‘Power’ and ‘Revenge’.

The Happiness cocktail is served with a passion fruit ‘acid’ tab that fizzes on your tongue, while the Beauty sip is served with a cherry sorbet lipstick.

Each cocktail is priced at S$24 (£13.35) so that guests choose their drink based on their dreams and desires, without being overly influenced by price.

    Even though the concept is different, technically is not the world´s first edible menu as there´s already a cocktail bar in Shanghai that has a menu on edible paper….
