The Vedika menu (£11-£14) will introduce 12 cocktails, three non-alcoholic, which are blended using cutting-edge centrifugal machines, and a “sonic homogeniser” (creating ultrasonic waves that allow the drinks to be infused with flavour). Tinctures, herbs and spices are added to represent each star sign and the selection includes Virgo’s Kanya in the West (“Kanya” in Hindi refers to the Indian solar calendar, which falls at the same time as the western star sign of Virgo) made with terroir gin, orange, citrus, honey, prosecco and frankincense ice cream. Geminis, on the other hand, might try the Harmonised Mithuna – a blend of Aquavit, vata spirit, grapefruit, clarified lemon, Belsazar rosé vermouth, salted hibiscus and soda.
