Looking for a sneak peek of some of the drinks available at Cocktails In The City? We've selected five interesting looking drinks we think you should be trying in Bedford Square Gardens on June 18-19th.
ICEBERG - created by Heads + Tails
The bars are back and we are celebrating so why not start with a little champagne cocktail?
50ml Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut, 10ml lime mix, 10ml gomme, 10ml Eminente clara, 10ml white wine.
A light but deceptively flavourful drink from the creative team at West Hampstead hangout Heads + Tails.
Grasshopper Cobbler - created by Coupette
If it's good enough for bars manager Andrei it's good enough for us! Coupette are known for mixing classic cocktails together and the classic mint, white chocolate combination of the grasshopper are paired perfectly with one of the worlds best gins.
30ml No.3 London Dry Gin, 45ml cacao blanc, 45ml crème de menthe, 45ml lemon, 22.5ml sugar, 120ml clarified milk.
An unusual combination of rich and creamy mouth feel but refreshing and the juniper led profile of No.3 coming to the fore.
LALOU - created by Silver Lining
40ml Discarded Grape Skin Vodka, 15ml Discarded Cascara Vermouth, 10ml spent coffee liqueur, 15ml Solo coffee concentrate, 20ml blackberry + rosemary cordial.
As part of the ThreeAfter3 stand that brings three leading female bartenders together from some of London's finest venues this drink is named after Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy, the 'Grand Dame of Burgundy' who is not just a trailblazer being one of the most renowned winemakers in Burgundy - but she pioneered biodynamic viticulture practices in her vineyards.
Her determination put her on the map and now not only are her wines some of the most coveted in the world, but her vinification practices have influenced many winemakers to switch to biodynamic farming - all the better for the wine and for the planet.
Chameleon - created by Bar Swift
50ml Montelobos Mezcal, 10ml Ancho Reyes Verde, 10ml fresh lime, 20ml green syrup (coriander, green bell pepper and sugar) 10ml pineapple eaux de vie.
A riff of the tequila verdita this is one of the best drinks we have tasted in a long time! The big win is the fresh bell green pepper which goes well with the Ancho Reyes Verde.
TNTini - created by Murder Inc
Watch out the Murder Inc team are back in town! This explosive little number is in partnership with one of the worlds most well-loved Single Malts who are embracing the world of cocktails - Glenmorangie.
40ml Glenmorangie X, 30ml Mango purée, 30ml lime and lemongrass sherbet, 30ml gunpowder tea infusion, 10ml Suze, 100ml peach water
We love a bit of gun powder in our drinks (preferably in the tea form) and time spent with this team is time well spent.
So don't miss out, check out these drinks and many many more in London's most beautiful private Georgian gardens on June 18 -19th.
