Michael Mas, French Toast
Mauresque, fond de culotte, kir, ti punch, fine à l’eau… Michael Mas has tapped into Pigalle’s typically cheeky take on life and jigged it up a little to give it a tasty contemporary twist. “I’ve turned these classic French aperitifs into more sophisticated cocktails. Using the sort of trusty favourites found in local bars, I’ve used my expertise as a modern Parisian barman to bring them up to date. I’ve spiced up the lemonade in our shandy with a nifty zest of ginger, for example, and I only work with artisan producers - in fact, our drinks list contains just French ingredients,” explains Michael with a glint in his eye.
