Innovative Cocktails from Lounge Bohemia
Here at MixPourSip.com, we like to share the creative efforts of working bartenders to see what is new and interesting in the cocktail world. While some bartenders freely share the recipes for their masterpieces, others prefer to keep them hidden as closely guarded trade secrets. Czech barman Paul Tvaroh, who holds court at Lounge Bohemia in London, is a hybrid of the two. He’ll gladly share ingredients for his singular creations, just not exact amounts. We are very grateful, as the cocktails listed bellow are very unique.
Many thanks to Paul for sharing and to Roberta (Bob) Simpson who took the pictures and gave us the drink descriptions.
“A bittersweet digestive of a drink, based upon some of the most herbal tasting spirit (rosemary, juniperberry and kafir lime leaf infused vodka) from the East European block. Definitely a unique taste and may well be one that could fit into the description of ‘you’ll either love it or hate it’.”
Vodka infused with juniper berry and kaffir lime leaf
“This drink is a fresh tasting mix of lemon and elderflower, with a pleasing peppery aftertaste that somehow lingers on the tongue. It should ideally be served in a martini glass with freshly ground black pepper garnishing half the rim of the glass (similar to the salt garnish on a margarita.”

Lavender Crème Brûlée
“This is an incredibly dessert-like drink which, as the name suggests, bears its origins in the world of crème brûlée with a lavendar twist. If you’re planning on going out for dinner before dropping down to Lounge Bohemia, I can recommend foregoing the dessert and saving space for this little gem.”
Advocaat (a low alcohol liqueur with a flavor reminiscient of custard.
Burnt sugar crust
All Sorts Martini (not shown)
“This is a licorice flavoured drink (which may surprise some as it does not contain a single drop of Absinthe). The All Sorts link is not only from the connection between licorice and the licorice flavour of the drink, but also due to the presentation of the drink as it comes with a selection of licorice flavoured extras prepared by a number of strange and scientific processes. “
