Fish sauce + glitter – on Dandelyan’s New Cocktail Menu

The Dandelyan Bar’s new menu steps away from the colour flower garnishes its known for and heads into the ‘darker’ plant world for its new menu. The cocktails have a simpler lok, but the flavours are, if anything, more adventurous than ever – with fermented ingredients like pineapple and fish sauce – and even a touch of glitter.

Here’s a peek at the new cocktail menu…


The new, Vices Of Botany menu at Dandelyan, (one of the World’s Best Bars) has four sections: Faith, Lust, Currency) $£¥€ and Rock ‘n’ Roll.

Forever an innovator, Ryan Chetiyawardana explores new flavours with fermented ingredients like banana and fish sauce, and using house-made dry banana and tomato wines. It’s not surprising to see lots of banana on Mr Lyan’s menu (Ryan is a big believer in the banana as the next big thing – and who can disagree with this guy?!).

On the  bar’s new menu:

Arsenic Waltz (Lust)

A striking green colour – possibly a nod to a bottle of the poison it takes its name from.

Tapatio Blanco, sour pear, long pepper and cucumber honey


Jail Bucks (Currency otherwise known as $£¥€)

Another bold colour , with a shimmer of glitter.

Yaguara Cachaca, black pepper, Manzanilla, pink garum and tonic


And no self respecting cocktail menu is without a zero alcohol serve theses days, there’s the Million Dollar Smile (see top pic), with Seedlip Spice, roasted sweet potato, off-cut cordial and grass and the Silk Road Gimlet, with salt-baked pomegranate, mulberry leaf, white tea and cardamom. Being Teetotal is certainly no bore anymore.
