3 lucky cocktails to try in London
If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the years is that drinking – especially in London – is expensive. And cocktails, which seem to evaporate too quickly, are even pricier. Thankfully we’ve potentially found a solution: three cocktail purchases which could potentially lead to free booze.
If you like to drink and gamble, you’ll like what’s next.
Duck & Luck @ Sexy Fish £16
This part cognac, part absinthe, part whiskey cocktail will definitely get your head spinning.
Why duck, you might ask? Because the cognac is rinsed in duck fat (watch out for the calories) – and a drop of soy sauce is added, as to give it an interesting, oriental twist.
Why luck? Because the cocktail is served with a Duck & Luck scratch card, for the chance to win a bottled version of the drink in a deluxe, take-away gift set.
One in a Million @ Cocktail Trading Co. £9
Ever wondered what “one in a million” was made of? Two parts chilli tequila, one part lime, one part watermelon, one part rhubarb, a dash of rose and… a lottery ticket, that will enter you into a monthly draw for the chance to participate to their cocktail masterclass. This one sounds like a winner.
Slum Dog Millionaire @ Shrub & Shutter £9
This colourfully tasty drink is made of Warner Edwards gin, Warner Edwards sloe gin, bitter truth apricot, redcurrant, mango chutney shrub (for an Indian twist), fresh lemon, grenadine, soda and frozen redcurrants. And yes that’s a scratch card.
So, feeling lucky?
