Cocktail aficionados familiar with The Modernist will be up for a stellar rendition at this bespoke bar owned by Olaf Harmel and Gerry Shirley.
Harmel plays off the terroir displayed by the apricots shipped in for Kinsman Rakia from Grocka near Belgrade, adds slight notes of bitterness from the Cynar and finishes with a satiny cocktail that’s less sweet than most on the tour.
