Skylon has launched a beehive installation transporting guests into a dripping honeycomb of dreams. Expect a visual spectacle for the senses as the sweet taste will immerse diners and drinkers into a beehive utopia. Skylon, situated on Southbank, has collaborated with Laurent Perrier to design three cocktails, each focussing on the versatility of the Champagne while enhancing the unctuous floral flavour of honey. This is also in support of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust where £1.00 will be added to each person's bar bill and donated back to the charity.
You'lll have the chance to enter Skylon's fantasy beehive filled with beautiful flowers and summer blooms whilst sipping on your chosen tipple. The menu includes the Bee Old Fashioned, Honey! featuring a muddle of Bulleit bourbon, apple, hazelnut, orange, applewood honey smoke, and Laurent Perrier Cuvée, the Honey Bear, made with Zacapa 23yr rum, amaretto, turmeric, honey, peach, citrus and Laurent Perrier Cuvée and finally, the Queen Bee, featuring Tanqueray No10 gin, Hibiscus, Pimms cup No1, wild berry shrub, honey paint and Laurent Perrier Cuvée Rose.
The restaurant will also serve a honey-inspired dessert to coincide with the installation, entitled the Honey Nut Hive. A textural delight, the pudding comprises a toasted walnut cake and burnt honey ice cream, topped with shards of honeycomb and bee pollen.
