‘Cocktails and Cake’ – The Kensington’s Perfect Serves

Tuesday 11th Jun 2024 |

As London gets ready for its favourite sporting event of the season, the tennis players won’t be the only ones serving as The Kensington launches a specially-curated ‘Cocktails and Cakes’ menu which will run from the 1st of July until the 14th of July.

For the duration of the tournament, The Kensington will be serving a superb selection of Wimbledon-themed sweet treats for you to enjoy. The man of the match has to be the Tennis Ball – a gorgeously green Matcha sponge served with a perfectly juicy and sweet pineapple mousse. However, the strawberry Panna Cotta served with a mouthwatering Pimms and lavender reduction is definitely a close second. If you prefer to keep things traditional, then don’t worry, you will still be able to get your hands on a delicious bowl of British strawberries with pouring cream.

If that wasn’t enough, the team have created a special, tennis-inspired cocktail menu, in partnership with Sipsmith London. If gin is your go-to tipple, a Lob, made with Sipsmith Gin, pandan, citrus and Champagne jasmine coral, is definitely one for you. As is Tea-nnis, which is made from Sipsmith’s London Cup, Earl Grey tea, nectarines and soda water. The Tie-break, which is made with Sipsmith Vodka, ginger cordial, pink grapefruit and black pepper, is not only delicious, but perfectly refreshing and tangy too. 

While the cakes (£12) will only be served throughout the competition, these fabulous cocktails (£17) will be available to sip on The Kensington’s porticos all summer, long after the final set has been won.
