In our last visit to 69 Colebrooke Row Tony Conigliaro shakes up a Somerset Sour. An ode to West Country cider, the cocktail uses brandy distilled from cider apples, and a float of traditional English cider. Rounding off the apple theme is a vacuum-cooked apple slice infused with the essence of hay, for the true Somerset experience.
In our second visit to 69 Colebrooke Row Tony Conigliaro makes a very special aged Manhattan. Made by mixing the usual Manhattan ingredients (whiskey, vermouth and bitters) sans-ice then storing them in a bottle for up to five years, the result is a very smooth, integrated, and of course delicious, drink!
In our final visit to Bourbon in Washington D.C. Owen Thompson makes his own twist on the Pimm’s Cup, made using his own homemade fresh ginger beer and a giant cucumber and salt garnish.
