After Dinner Cocktails at The Greenhouse
October 24, 2014

After Dinner Cocktails? It’s not what you think. The chefs from The Greenhouse have created a unique collection of petit fours for your after dinner enjoyment.

“It’s a great way to end the meal, as it’s a bit of a talking point and pretty fun,” says Executive Chef Peter Tempelhoff.

Margarita Fruit Jellies: lime and tequila jellies with a salted lime sherbet on top.
