A Mexican feast of colour and taste: Frida Kahlo Afternoon Tea

This summer, The Franklin will play host to Frida Kahlo fans across the globe, transporting them to Mexico to indulge in a colourful array of delicious treats.

Drawing inspiration from the V&A’s hottest exhibition Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up, guests will sip on tequila cocktails, designed by multi-award winning mixologist Salvatore Maggio and enjoy Mexican delicacies including Flan De Cajeta, churros with a chocolate dipping sauce and beans and chilli sandwiches. See the full menu here.

This fresh and colourful afternoon tea experience is the third in a succession of teas that have been inspired by the group’s partnership with the V&A museum. Previous afternoon tea experiences have included the Rock’n Roll Afternoon Tea at The Gore, inspired by Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remain and the Silly Old Bear Afternoon Tea at The Pelham based on Winnie the Pooh Exploring a Classic exhibition.

As with previous immersive dining experiences, The Frida Kahlo Afternoon Tea will give guests complimentary access to the exhibition – the first one outside of Mexico to display her clothes and intimate possessions, reuniting them with key self-portraits and photographs to offer a fresh perspective on her compelling life story.
