Want an alcoholic drink that not only tastes great but boosts your emotions too? Cocktail bar Barts is doing just that with their creative Mood Menu.
The three drinks on the Mood Menu are happiness, relaxation, and focus. Each drink uses special serotonin-rich ingredients that have been scientifically proven to help improve the body and mind. Serotonin is often called the “happy molecule” and it is the brain’s natural way of feeling elated.
The happiness drink is loaded with fruits that have the right nutrients necessary for serotonin to reach ideal levels in the brain. A combination of fruits, vegetables, and vodka makes up the happiness drink, which will help release endorphins that will make you feel elated and centered.
The relax drink uses a camomile elixir as well as calcium and magnesium rich ingredients that reduces anxiety. Coupled with Tanqueray gin, lavender, and lemon relax will help soothe nerves and alleviate stress.
The focus drink is a stimulating drink loaded with smoked wheat coffee beans, and Kamm and Sons mixture of herbs, spices, and more. The caffeine acts as a suppressor to the neurotransmitter adenosine (a sleep inducer). Coffee also helps release serotonin, making this drink perfect to stay sharp and awake.
Barts is located on Chelsea Cloisters, 87 Sloane Avenue, London SW3 3DW and opens at 6:00 pm and closes at 12:30 am on weekdays and 1:30 am on weekends.
