Set within a Grade II listed building built in 1923 and originally known as The Shepherds Bush Pavilion, Dorsett Shepherds Bush boasts 317 Chinese inspired bedrooms and suites. The hotel also offers two sumptuous restaurants – Pictures and Shikumen, The Dorsett Lounge, the decadent Adeela Crown Aesthetic Spa, a 24 hour fitness centre, business hub, as well as the popular Jin Bar.
Proving that a health-kick doesn’t always have to be restrictive, Jin Bar’s head mixologist has concocted three inventive cocktails that are packed full of fruit, vegetables, herbs and a healthy dose of vitamins; perfect for those seeking a guilt-free treat.
A traditional cocktail with a twist, the Beetroot Martini is an innovative blend of Absolut vodka, beetroot juice, oolong tea and pimms with a sharp squeeze of lime. A super food bursting with flavour and rich in potassium, magnesium, iron, multiple vitamins and antioxidants, Beetroot boasts exceptional nutritional values and has long been used for its natural medicinal qualities.
For a dose of greens, The Dorsett Detox is a delicious blend of gin infused with tarragon, earl grey tea and fennel, topped with apple juice, a dash of orange syrup, absinthe and a squeeze of lime. The natural oils found in Tarragon and Fennel provide antioxidant protection, immune system support and are also a vital source of vitamin C, whilst bergamot found in Earl Grey tea has been found to aid digestion, alleviate anxiety and can lower the risk of heart disease.
For those recovering from the excesses of Christmas, why not enjoy a non-alcoholic cocktail, aptly named Dry January. This refreshing mix of elderflower cordial, lime juice and passion fruit juice is shaken, strained and topped with ginger ale and a slice of cucumber; the ideal way to get your five a day.
