Kodiak Cocktail Creations
Lemon Pie / $23
Just like warm lemon pie. Yellow Chartreuse, Frangelico, lemon and sugar, garnished with a lemon twist. In 1806, just outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a devout Quaker, renowned baker, confectioner, and cooking school founder named Elizabeth Goodfellow created the first delicious lemon meringue pie. Elizabeth also decided that listing all of the ingredients at the start of the recipe would make the world a little bit more organised. The trend caught on, so the modern recipe was born. Our cocktail homage to the tangy, sweet, and sassy beginnings of the humble lemon pie are a cheers to everyone who takes the lemons life gives, mixes them with whatever is in the fridge and makes cocktails!
Warhead Candy / $24
Ask for extreme sour, we dare you! Midori, Cointreau and lemon, with a popping candy rimmed coupe glass and garnished with a sour apple fan. To every child of the 80s and 90s, the greatest moment of your life has arrived! We can now proudly present; a cocktail that talks back to you and doesn’t listen to your whinging... a cocktail that holds your hand on those dark lonely nights when we think we are too old to be out this late; a cocktail that smacks you in the face for being boring, a cocktail that makes you burn with nostalgia, and if Willy Wonka opened a bar, this cocktail would adorn every table as a monument to remind all 30, 40 and 50 year old ex-children to never forget to "schedule some silly”. Kodiaks’ own recipe starts the sourness with a lightly balanced and delicious moderate level nestled in a coupe glass that has been rimmed with our secret candy mix and topped with a sour apple fan, but we dare you to ask for the “Kodiak’s own silly duckface extreme sour blend”!
Big Red / $20
Like no other. Jack Daniels fire, grenadine, fresh ginger, topped with root beer and garnished with cinnamon. Kiss a little longer, stay close a little longer, hold tight a little longer is the Big Red chewing gum jingle that made this Cinnamon icon a household name in the 90s.When Neyo put a backbeat and harmonies to the original jingle in 2008, it caused a stir (excuse the pun) amongst the purists, but high five for trying something new we say. It still gets stuck in your head for days and spontaneous outbursts of it invade your head until you are never quite the same again, ever!... so, for your own sanity, we would strongly advise you to enjoy our creation, but NEVER LISTEN TO THE JINGLE!
S‘mores American Summer Camp / $22
Marshmallow infused vodka with crème de cacao, toasted marshmallow syrup in a chocolate lined glass with a biscuit rim. Garnished with toasted marshmallows. You’ll want to Kumbaya. Sit down, take a moment, close your eyes and drift back in time. The first day of summer camp’s fears and uncertainty are washing away with the sounds of smiles and belonging. Surrounded by new friends and excitement, you sit around the campfire for the first time. The evening breeze starts to swell and a smokey haze forms in the distance as the soft glow of the campfire grasps at the light from the first day’s sunset. In your hand, spiked on a fallen branch, are marshmallows that dance like shooting stars as you hold them up to the sky to inspect the perfect scorch. Quickly you squeeze the marshmallow between the two crackers lined with chocolate, that you delicately prepared earlier. It's then, at that moment, you experience the taste of an American summer.
Summer of ‘69 / $20
Gin shaken with lemon juice, sugar, raspberry gomme and Peychaud’s bitters, topped with tonic. To celebrate 50 years of stonewall - June 1969. On June 28th, 1969 at a small bar in New York, chaos burst through the doors of Stonewall. Words of hate engulfed a rare haven of freedom. One single terrified voice closed his eyes and found the courage to whisper "we are not afraid, we are not afraid, we are not afraid". One by one, defiance stood together and through the cacophony of hatred, a chorus slowly emerged and proudly spread as a beacon across the world in unity forever since. For our cocktail dedication we embraced mythology and symbolism from cultures all over the world and chose raspberries as the key ingredient. Raspberries consistently represent love, protection and growth and their vibrant red intensity symbolises strength, sexuality, passion and heroism.
X Hits the Spot / $22
Created by Kodiak’s own barman Dan. Blended with spiced rum, dark chocolate liqueur, almond, lemon, cracked pepper and shaken with coffee beans.
