Bring Your Own Cocktail
It's all very hush hush and secretive and you need to book before you go there. The venue is completely out of sight from the unsuspecting passers-by and it took us a while before we'd actually found the way in. Its entrance is hidden inside a juice bar called the Juice Club on Bedfordbury Street among the crates of oranges and lemons and behind bottles of freshly squeezed bottles of juice.
We were greeted by our cocktail master Alexei who grabbed our bottle of rum and after consulting our preferences and favourite flavours, swiftly started mixing it up with all sorts of interesting ingredients and fresh juices. Our first drink was a breakfast martini made with fresh orange and lime juice, some vanilla syrup and egg white for the froth. His second concoction was made with real cucumbers, rose syrup, some apple and vanilla syrup. Our third drink was even more unusual as it was made up of yellow bell peppers. We finished our evening with a strawberry, basil and balsamic cocktail. The cocktails were all very experimental, but each and every one was extremely tasty. After two hours we had to leave our table as our session was finished, but the weird and wonderful cocktails of BYOC certainly left a taste for more. Must go back soon.
