Transforming the 19-story LED wall of the InterContinental Miami hotel into a digital canvas for performative architecture, NEWT is teaming up with Bombay Sapphire to create spirited concoctions for their sensorial program, curated by national Bombay Sapphire Brand Ambassador, Gary Hayward.
The “Sir Isaac Newton” cocktail is adapted after one of the most famous anecdotes in science: a young Newton is sitting in his garden when an apple falls on his head, leading him in a stroke of genius to come up with the theory of gravity. Also key to the Sir Isaac Newton cocktail is mint, aptly selected as an ingredient because of the scientist’s post as “Master of the Mint” in 1699. Highlighting the bright, citrus botanicals of Spanish lemon peel and Moroccan coriander seeds in Bombay Sapphire Gin, the combined apple and mint give depth and accent the floral notes of Italian Orris root. Refreshing and balanced, enjoy The Sir Isaac Newton served long over ice and in a full-sensory experience connecting light, music and color to the palate.
