Discover the art of mixology this World Cocktail Day at LPM Riyadh. Renowned for its light, ingredient-led French Mediterranean and Niçoise inspired cuisine, LPM’s passion for fresh, authentic flavours is translated into every aspect of the brand’s menu, including its beverages and cocktails. In celebration of World Cocktail Day on May 13th, LPM Riyadh will be introducing Frescoes, an artistic mocktail which, alongside the restaurant’s expertly crafted drinks offering, will deliver a gastronomic grade, alcohol-free drinking experience that caters to even the most sophisticated culinary connoisseurs.
An original mocktail from LPM’s global cocktail experience “Recipes for our Friends”, Frescoes encapsulates the creative vision set forth by the immersive beverage menu. Meticulously crafted over a period of 12 months by LPM’s award-winning Global Bar Manager Tibor Kracsenics, “Recipes for our Friends” curates an artistically infused, multi-sensorial cocktail journey through the life of prolific French artist Jean Cocteau. As one of the mocktails featured on the exclusive menu, Frescoes is an unmissable concoction; bringing together light bursts of peach, almond, and clementine with the complexity of Juniper syrup for an irresistible touch of savoury Umami. Topped off with a delightful garnish of Juniper berries, this one-of-a-kind clarified milk punch eloquently merges history with Jean Cocteau’s fantastical artworks. Uniquely served in a hand-painted clay cup which features a design referencing the haute-bohemian Santo Sospir villa in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Frescoes pays homage to the whimsical frescoes by Jean Cocteau on the villa’s walls, which continue to capture the imagination of people around the world.
Another highlight to explore on LPM Riyadh’s menu is the Menthe À L’Eau Fizz – Strawberry; an elevated take on the classic Mojito, developed in-house by LPM Riyadh’s drinks lab mixologists. The delicately blended mocktail, which is exclusive to the Riyadh location, brings together fresh strawberries and lime with hints of mint in a delicious elixir served over three artisan ice balls. Using LPM’s bespoke clarification process, the colours of the ingredients are removed, delivering a clear mocktail that eloquently preserves the signature tastes and smells of every ingredient it features. Also available in classic Mint and tropical Passionfruit flavours, Menthe À L’Eau Fizz makes for the perfect beverage to sip alongside any meal.
For those looking for something a little more theatrical, the Tomati-NO mocktail, is certain to delight. A non-alcoholic rendition of LPM’s global signature drink Tomatini, Tomati-NO brings together clarified tomato juice and cherry tomato shrub to draw attention to the complex flavours of sun-ripened tomatoes; capturing the essence of LPM in a glass. Light, refreshing, and served with a statement, the mocktail finished off with an aromatic touch of freshly ground pepper, added directly onto the beverage when it is served on the table with a dramatic oversized pepper grinder.
Sip on one, or perhaps try them all, as you take in the LPM’s delectable cuisine, chic ambience and melodic tunes inspired by the French Riviera for an unforgettable World Cocktail Day in the dynamic heart of the Kingdom.
