In this series, we ask some of our favourite talent to pick a muse and create a drink for him or her.
As artists, inspiration can come from anywhere. It is believed that the existence of a muse helps tap into unexplored creative depths and pushes artists of any kind to the pinnacle of their creativity. We were keen to explore this idea and see how the existence of a muse could affect the creative process behind a drink.
The brief is simple:
- Pick a muse. Could be anyone, famous or not, male or female. Could even be your partner/child/parent/friend
- Describe him/her (personality traits, special characteristics)
- Imagine he/she walks into your bar. What will you serve?
We begin this series with David West, who is greatly inspired by his grandfather William (Bill) Hannant and Jonathan Lee, the General Manager of Jake’s Bar, Leeds. Read on, get inspired.
