A Taste of Amalfi at Charlie's restaurant and the Donovan Bar at Brown's

Brown's Hotel Cocktail Hour

If the recent haute couture shows by the likes of Chanel in Florence, Gucci in Puglia and Dolce & Gabbana in Sicily left you craving warm Italian sunshine and the zing of Riviera lemons, then look no further than Charlie's and the Donovan Bar at Brown's.

This September, Michelin-starred chef Adam Byatt's signature lemon tart and the maestro of mixology Salvatore Calabrese's Amalfi Dream cocktail are bound to put a spring in your step ahead of a spot of shopping on Bond Street or after a busy day at London Fashion Week.

Alternatively, why not try making Salvatore's delicious cocktail first concocted during a family barbeque in his hometown of Maiori on the Amalfi coast yourself? Here's how...


50 ml vodka

20 ml Salvatore’s Liquore Di Limone or a good quality limoncello

20 ml freshly squeezed juice from Amalfi lemons

3-4 mint leaves

The method:

In a cocktail shaker, add all the ingredients along with ice, as desired. Next, shake sharply so the ice breaks through the mint leaves. Strain into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice, allowing bits of mint leaves to flow in. Finally, garnish with a sprig of mint and a slice of an Amalfi lemon. Salute!
