The Electric Bar launched a new cocktail menu this month, including classics with a twist and new Electrician’s signature drinks, and The Lincolnite went to check it out.
The bar is located on the top floor of DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel on Brayford Wharf North in Lincoln, which is on the former site of the city’s first power station.
The Electric bar menu features electrifying themes, local stories and historical figures to showcase the narrative behind the brand.
The new cocktails
The bar wanted a drink on its winter list that encapsulated wonderful, warming flavours synonymous with the festive season, but with a touch of luxury. A twist on a classic sour features Amaretto, peach and a toasted almond flavour, with an Amaretti biscuit crumb delicately gilded with edible gold.
Lindo aka ‘The Pool’
This drink is in homage to the bar’s location on the sunning Brayford Waterfront. The first known settlement in Lincoln, dating back to the first century, inspiring the area’s original name of Lindon, translating as ‘The Pool’ in Celtic language. This is a cool, refreshing blend of pear, apple and lemon flavours with vanilla and warming ginger to balance.
As the city’s first sky bar, the drink represents the blue skies and fluffy white clouds that can be admired from the rooftop setting.
The Sparks list of prosecco cocktails continues to prove popular and Magnetic has now been added, which features unicorn gin and a pop of colour from citrusy-sweet Curaçao.
The gin-based cocktails have been very popular and, remaining close to its original recipe, Clover Club combines gin, vermouth, raspberry and a touch of rose syrup and petals for a glamorous finish.
