Spring is officially here which means… cherry blossom is about bloom. The beautiful pale pink trees might be a little more hard to come by in Manchester compared to the Japanese regions of Kyoto, Tokyo and Kansai, the latter being home to Mount Yoshino, possibly Japan’s most famous cherry blossom destination, but things are about to become blooming wonderful here in the North West. The Ivy Asia Spinningfields will be welcoming in the spring season by launching an unmissable Blossom Nights event series and limited edition specials.
From March 24 to May 12, guests will be able to immerse themselves in the spirit of Japan at The Ivy Asia with bespoke dishes including a Sakura Cherry Blossom dessert, and cocktails created in collaboration with The House of Suntory. The Ivy Asia Spinningfields has worked closely with the Japanese spirits company which produces a range of whisky, vodka and gin to create five new cocktails for the occasion.
Tantalising additions include The Rose and Cherry Martini, a refreshingly sweet blend of Roku Gin, Aker Rose Aperitif, Cherry Blossom Syrup and Citric Batch, The Sakura Martini, a classic drink which features Hibiki Harmony, Peach and Pomelo Liqueur, Lemon Juice and Sugar Syrup, and The Cherry Blossom Garden, a delightfully light blend of Haku Vodka, Sakura Vermouth and Roku.
For those with a sweet tooth, the restaurant has created a show-stopping limited-edition dessert to indulge in throughout the campaign. The Sakura Cherry Blossom Dessert is delicious soft serve ice cream with dark chocolate sauce. Plus, The Ivy Asia has put a Spring twist on their famous platter which features Passion Fruit Doughnuts, White Chocolate & Yuzu Cheesecake and their Mini Samurai, to name a few.
In addition to all the Manchester restaurant’s seasonal cocktails and desserts for Sakura season The Ivy Asia Spinningfields will be celebrating with blossom-themed performers, DJs and percussionists from 6:30-10:30pm. Taking place for one night only on May 12, it’s expected to be a night to remember.
