"classic and inspired cocktails with tapas"
While your eyes are adjusting to the rainbow of colours flashing through the sky, and the majestic silhouette of Es Vedra that peaks just above the horizon in the distance, a feast for your other senses also awaits. The cocktail list, for example, has been created by a passionate team of mixologists, and includes innovative flavour combinations designed solely to stimulate the tastebuds. All the classics are still there: the Manhattan, the French Martini, the Negroni, the Pisco Sour, but so too are a host of clever new concoctions inspired by the island and other influences.
Take the Es Vedra, for example. Named after the aforementioned limestone rock that plays a pivotal role in the island’s heritage, this cocktail features lemongrass-infused gin, lemon juice, almond syrup, salty water and raspberry air. The Black Sails meanwhile, has a more smoky, strong flavour thanks to the mixing of coconut oil fat washed rum, Patrón coffee, and chocolate bitters. The Pine-Icus, named after Ibiza’s indigenous pine forests and featuring ingredients inspired and created on the island, mixes vodka, Italicus bergamot liqueur, reduction of Hierbas Ibicencas, lemon juice, pine syrup and Champagne – offering not only a unique flavour combination but also a window into Ibiza’s flavour-filled past.
The small plates menu at the Pershing Yacht Terrace offers the perfect accompaniment to each cocktail. Once again paying tribute to Ibiza’s rich culinary history, it includes dishes like hand sliced Iberico ham, Menorcan cured Mahón cheese, patatas bravas – the classic fried potato squares with spiced salsa brava and alioli – Iberico ham croquetas, cantabrico anchovies and shrimp cigars served with lemon chutney. Each plate is elegantly crafted to reflect its cosmopolitan surroundings, and provides the ideal way to truly immerse oneself in an authentic Mediterranean experience.
