The Science Museum, London, UK

Our bar team were invited along to the Science Museum to collaborate with London caterers Rocket Food to serve up hundreds of cocktails using elit by Stolichnaya and Bayou Louisiana rum.

The event titled 'THE LEGEND ABOUT VALENTINA' was held to honour the 80th birthday of Dr. Valentina Tereshkova, Hero of the Soviet Union. In 1963, Dr. Tereshkova helped launch the space age by becoming the first woman and the first civilian in space. Today she remains the only woman to have travelled solo in space.

The great Dr.Tereshkova was at the event for photo opportunities. There was also a screening of a specially commissioned short film on her life, accompanied by The Russian Philharmonic Orchestra with acclaimed violinist Dmitri Kogan as the soloist.

Our team served up 3 cocktails on the night including:

Classic elit Martini - elit by Stolichnaya vodka stirred with Belsazar dry vermouth and garnished with an olive

elit Martini Spritz - elit by Stolichnaya vodka stirred with homemade black peppercorn water, grapefruit bitters and garnished with pink grapefruit oils

Select Old Fashioned - Bayou Select rum stirred with Monin gingerbread syrup and a dash of aztec chocolate bitters garnished with orange oils
