So it's Monday morning, let's talk cocktails! BeautyandtheDirt Editor Krista and I went to a drinks party at The London Cocktail Club last Thursday. Considering it's only a stones throw from the office I can't believe we haven't been before - and if you're ever in Goodge Street then be brave and enter this basement bar where those who know about cocktails hang out.
Here I indulged my passion for French Martini - the addition of a fresh bay leaf of the top was inspired I must say. To accompany your cocktail they do fresh nibbles and charcuterie boards to nibble on, and all though we didn't partake they did look very interesting.
Cocktails weren't too extortionate for this part of town either - £7.50 and upwards isn't bad for the West End and they were delicious! Check them out at The London Cocktail Club, 61 Goodge Street, London W1T !TL, 020 7580 1960
Inspired by this I decided to make my own French Martini's on Saturday night - you will need,
1.5 fluid oz Vodka ( I used Raspberry Vodka to enhance the raspberry flavour but plain is fine), 0.5 fluid oz of Chambord raspberry liqueur and 3 fluid oz Pineapple Juice. Put all in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake and serve! Here you go.... My version of a French Martini...
