Executive Chef Kruno Velican and Zeta Bar Manager Christian Comparone have created a series of artisanal ‘farm-to-glass’ cocktails that highlight fresh produce, sophisticated cooking techniques and Zeta bar’s continual drive for creativity.
The Zeta Bar Culinary Cocktail Experience cocktail menu follows a typical dining menu, divided into Brunch, such as juice jam and cornflakes; Entrée, Aperitif style light bodied cocktails; Main, full bodied cocktails with savoury notes; and Dessert, sweet refreshing digestives with fruit and creamy infusions.
Guests can craft their own experience from the a la carte menu or select from one of Zeta Bar’s signature two or three-course set menus, served with individual food pairings.
The Movie Night experience brings sweet and salty cinema flavours together. The two-course menu features the Pisco Pop cocktail made with popcorn syrup, Coca-Cola foam and vanilla salt and served in a champagne flute. This is followed by the Coconut Grenade, a creamy concoction made with banana infused rum, coconut cream and chocolate bitters. The drink is served in a coconut shell with dry ice for theatrics. As for the food paring, guests are served a vanilla and chilli choco pop ice cream alongside the cocktails.
The Plantation experience is a two-course vegan menu with Rama Caliente, a spiced curry inspired cocktail made with Jalapeno infused Tequila Sake, Thai basil syrup and coconut curry. Followed by Pearfection, the sweet cocktail blends cognac, spiced rum and chocolate liqueur with a fresh pear soaked in Chardonnay reduction ready to be eaten. Puffed rice, nashi pear and toasted hazelnut accompany the cocktails.
Other feature menus include Zeta Fusion, a two-course menu featuring a combination of savoury, sour and smoky flavours of Mezcal that bring with them the taste of a barbecue; Grandma’s Kitchen, three-courses that bring together flavours and aromas of Sunday roast at Grandma’s house, and Mare Nostrum, a Mediterranean inspired three-course menu featuring La Carbonara cocktail with rye infused bacon as the main attraction.
Tempted? If you’re looking for an experience to be remembered or to impress someone special, the Zeta Bar Culinary Cocktail Experience is available 5pm to 7pm Monday to Friday. And it’s not to be missed.
