I have some super exciting news… A cocktail recipe I created is going to be on the menu at a real bar!
Seriously, a real bar guys. One with more bottles of alcohol than you can imagine and really comfy seats and one where people may even pay money to drink my drink.
For a girl who grew up creating some seriously weird concoctions in her kitchen this is kind of a big deal. Just think Mum and Dad, all those times you painfully sipped mocktail after mocktail led to this. That hybrid of golden syrup, orange juice, coke and lime cordial was totally worth gulping down.
A month ago I was invited to a Woodford Reserve masterclass at the South Place Hotel bar. Obviously I’m going to enjoy any evening with bourbon as the focus and I had a really lovely time. We all had the opportunity to go away and create our own take on a classic American cocktail and I’m pleased to say that my creation, a little number called Doctor’s Orders, won.
The prize is a place on the menu at the South Place Hotel bar in London, a rather swell place close to Liverpool Street station. I’m not sure when the cocktail will go on the menu but when you see photos of me ordering cocktail after cocktail on Instagram you’ll know it’s available.
In the meantime feel free to make it yourself at home!
Thanks (again) to Woodford Reserve, Stir PR and South Place Hotel bar for the opportunity and for giving me a ‘fact that nobody knows about you’ answer I can use in every awkward team building exercise for the rest of my life.
