Negroni Futurista

8 Jun

For Negroni Week I’m enjoying a Negroni Futurista from Gaz Regan‘s wonderful negroni book.

The recipe is:

  • 1 part Sloe gin
  • 1 part Fino sherry
  • 1 part Campari

All stirred over ice.

The end result is very bitter, dry and fruity – and very enjoyable.

Return To Hawksmoor

23 Aug

Hawksmoor is one of my favourite restaurants to visit (any branch will do tonight we were at Air Street) and tonight they didn’t let us down.
Of course we were there for the food (pictured are the fried Queenies we began with) but the drinks aren’t a mere second here. The cocktail menu was the first we asked for…

I began with a Hawksmoor Collins (Gin, Campari, Orange Bitters & Lemon, topped with Soda) and ended with a Sherry Cobbler (Manzanilla Sherry churned with Citrus Fruits). Both were delicious but the cobbler was unlike any drink I’d had before-wonderful and weird at the same time.  As I sipped my mouth was filled with sherry, then fruit, then sherry, then fruit and so on., The two flavours didn’t seem to mix at all which was unexpected and unusual.

I can see I might have to return to try another and see if it’s just as strange and addicitive.
