Continuing our series of drinks from Le Lion – Bar de Paris, join Søren Sørensen for Le Lion’s house drink, Le Coquetiez du Lion. A sophisticated yet approachable take on the Vesper, Le Coquetiez du Lion pays tribute in both its ingredients and name to American drink culture, classic cocktails, and the French name of the bar it calls home.
Le Lion is a small cocktail bar in Hamburg, which opened in late 2007 and has since gone to worldwide acclaim winning “Best New Cocktail Bar” at the 2008 Tales of the Cocktail Spirits Awards. Join owner Jörg Meyer for a Gin-Basil Smash, a simple but elegant drink that became the summer sensation of 2008 around the bars of Germany, and beyond.
