Cocktails at the Amaranto Bar, Four Seasons Hotel

A deviously good time can be had at the Amaranto Bar of the Four Seasons, Park Lane. The Italian inspired bar was surprisingly masculine, offering a long list of martinis and negronis. Thankfully, there are rich desserts to sweeten the deal as well as a fine selection of Italian wines to fall back on. There were some soon to be on the menu cocktails, a tour of the kitchen with the Head Chef Davide Degiovanni and the sampling of a rosé Franciacorta with one of their sommeliers Rafael Peil. Quite an adventure.

Here are a selection of photos from the night:
