Available from 18th to 22nd September and priced at £8 each – the four-strong menu includes:
“The Basic Bitch”
Inspired by Kate Moss’ now infamous insult, this tipple is as basic as they come with just two ingredients Homemade Spiced Rum and Punt e Mes, served over ice.
Quip about Solange dressing better than her big sis, from the pioneer of the putdown, Joan Rivers. This blend of Plymouth Slow gin, Cherry Herring, Lemon Juice & Egg White will leave a sour taste in the mouth.
“Only Show Her Back”
Karl Lagerfeld came out with this corker about the other Middleton sister. Like man himself, this blend of Apple, Raspberry, Gooseberry, Honey & Lime intends to jar the senses.
According to Anna Wintour, everyone apart from her is a “nobody”. Strong words the US editor of Vogue, like this mix of Tanqueray Gin, Cocchi Americano, Benedictine & Lemon Bitters.
