The return of The Rat Pack Live From Las Vegas at Theatre Royal Haymarket has inspired a special list of cocktails at a nearby bar.
Brumus Restaurant & Bar at Haymarket Hotel is to offer the menu to tie in with the show that runs from January 9 to February 3, with drinks named after the hits of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr and Dean Martin.
The Rat Pack cocktails, created in association with drinks company Diageo Reserve and its “World Class” portfolio of spirits, include Fly Me to the Moon, named after one of Sinatra’s most famous songs, made with Bulleit Rye whiskey, coffee liqueur and maple and espresso ice cream.
Two other Martini twists take their names from other Sinatra hits: That’s Life combines Tanqueray No Ten gin and Noilly Pratt vermouth while The Lady is a Tramp combines Ketel One vodka and Dolin Dry vermouth.
That’s Amore takes its name from one of Dean Martin’s most famous numbers, mixing Zacapa 23 rum, Mozart Dark liqueur, Grand Marnier, champagne and cherry syrup.
As well as the cocktails, Brumus Restaurant is offering a special three-course pre-theatre dinner package with a live performance by one of London’s most sought-after jazz and swing acts, The Leon Garner Trio, playing tunes from the Great American Songbook.
Diners can then move to the theatre to see Garrett Phillips as Frank Sinatra, Nigel Casey as Dean Martin and David Hayes as Sammy Davis Jr at Las Vegas’s famous Sands Hotel, accompanied by the 12-piece Rat Pack Big Band and Joanna Walters, Amelia Adams, Rebecca Parker and Laura Darton as the Burrelli Sisters. They will also be joined by Nicola Emmanuelle as special guest Ella Fitzgerald.
