Cocktails made with seaweed and aloe vera are now being served at a Cardiff speakeasy

[UK] The Dead Canary speakeasy in Cardiff is taking its mysteriously delicious cocktail menu a step further by dedicating its new drinks to some of Wales’ fantastic medieval tales.

The new menu has been designed to take guests on a literary journey by basing the drinks on the classic 12 Welsh myths and legends which make up the Mabinogion.

The Dead Canary is using historical ingredients, medical remedies and herbs to carefully craft cocktails such as the First Prince and the White Dragon, to represent these literary tales in modern Welsh culture.

The new special ingredients include aloe vera, seaweed and quince tea and the mythical inspired menu contains “chapters” that make up groupings of cocktails with varying intensity throughout.

The Otherworld chapter, for example, contains a fair few fiery, strong drinks representing supernatural beings and elements.

The bar will also be offering ‘mocktails’ on the menu for the first time, as well as Welsh beers and ciders.

General Manager Mark Holmes, said: “We want to shake things up and keep things interesting for our guests. This new menu has been a labour of love for the whole team, with our bartenders creating the drink recipes and another, Richard Gaskell, creating the incredible illustrations.

“We work with a very talented team, all of which are handpicked and they are one of the key reasons why we have continued to be a success. We all have a passion for delivering the best service and experiences for our customers by creating more than just drinks.”
