Atul Kochhar, the first Indian chef in the world to receive a Michelin star, will be collaborating with City of London Gin throughout the Chelsea Flower Show at his new Mayfair restaurant, Kanishka. The themed pop-up will feature four floral cocktails available from May 19th-June 2nd.
The beautiful drinks will be served under the magical greenery of Kanishka’s living ceiling, and include How Does Your Garden Grow (Lemon City of London Gin, Roast Lemon & Ginger Vermouth, Lemon, Turmeric, Elderflower & Lemon Lixir Tonic – £9) and The Flower Pot (Grapefruit Peel infused Rhubarb & Rose City of London Gin, Rose Wine, Rhubarb & Ginger Lixir Tonic – £9).
A bespoke Chelsea Flower Show Tasting Menu created by Kochhar and featuring one of the cocktails will also be on offer, priced at £75 per person.

A three-course set menu will also be available for lunch and early/late dinners, priced at £35 per person and including their choice of floral cocktail alongside dishes such as North Eastern Crispy Seafood with Raw Tamarind Ketchup, Old Delhi Butter Chicken Khichdi, and Tandoori Fruit Custard.
