Bacon and eggs is only for BREAKFAST you say? OK, it's great at any damn time! However, what is absolutely not negotiable is that it is taken in solid form...i.e as a foodstuff. WRONG AGAIN! The London Cocktail Club brings you the Bacon and Egg cocktail with bacon infused Jack Daniels, maple syrup and orange bitters. You know you want it.
Weirdest Cocktails in London
If it ain't broke don't fix it? Wrong. Cover it in condiments! Throw a science laboratory at it! Freeze it, burn it, set it on FIRRRRREEE! Cocktail making gets sublime, sacrilegious and sometimes verges on the sordid all in the name of experimentation. But here's the kicker...they (mostly) actually taste great! You may not understand it but you do have to try it, so be delighted and revolted by our list of the weirdest cocktails out there. Check out our favourites when it comes to some of the most weird and wonderful cocktails in London
Now, you can get into a spot of bother for swallowing goldfish...but luckily The Fable gives you the opportunity to act out these strange and perverse desires in a legal and probably slightly tastier form. The Skinny Goldfish in a Bag cocktail does not include live fish and murky water but a yummy mix of gin, rhubarb bitters, pink grapefruit 'fish' and edible lily pads.
At Purl, a cocktail is not just a drink, it's an immersive, extra-sensory, theatrical experience. Try a Barber's Cut for £10 and attempt to sip Rittenhouse rye, port, Kamm & Sons, an egg off a barber's mirror. We won't judge you if you resort to lapping it like a cat. A tea tree and mint scented tea towel is provided for the inevitable accident.
Split into playful Expedition Planning, Base Camp, Pathfinders, Explorers and Treasures sub-categories, there's always something delightfully inventive to swill at when you're drinking with Lost & Found. Tuck into a Cognac and grassy Chartreuse Green liqueur-infused Daddy's Hip Flask served in - you guessed it - a hip flask, or enjoy an Alice in Wonderland sharing cocktail that comes to the table served in a top hat!
Jazz up those pre or post-theatre drinks with a trip to this Covent Garden basement bar. Hidden in the former green room of The Arts Theatre you'll be treated to vintage-inspired interiors and some very special cocktails.
There are many options for the Karma Sanctum Soho Hotel: either head to their Wild Heart Restaurant and Bar for some delicious, fresh food, washed down by a cocktail or two, or head to the Roof Terrace for some alfresco (or covered, depending on the time of year) drinks.
Go Guac' to the Future for £9.50 with Callooh Callay's cocktail of tequila mixed with guacamole. Handily condensing those great Mexican institutions into one glass, it would be rude not to. If only for the sheer efficiency of it.
The magical healing power of tea has always been known by the British, and the slightly more hit-or-miss salving effects of alcohol is known by, well, pretty much everyone. It's the British Whey, combining PG tips syrup, split milk whey and Johnnie walker Black label, gives you the best of both.
One of the higher powers at Duck and Waffle has clearly bunged all their favourite things into their mouth all at once and discovered that, strangely, it doesn't taste half bad! Does a Chocolate and Blue Cheese Martini martini appeal? well you can get it, as well as a Marmite, Guinness and champagne blend, both for £14.
Feel deliciously weird about yourself by taking unholy pleasure in The Holy Smoke. Served in a hollowed out Bible and including cognac infused with untreated cowhide and served with frankincense and myrr smoke, it really animates the Nativity story in an unconventional light! But you know, Jesus loved a tipple. All that water into wine business wasn't solely for our benefit.
69 Colebrooke Row is rather like an oyster itself...nothing special from the outside but hiding all kinds of exotic wonders on the inside. Hunt out the unmarked door (recognise it by the Martini awning) down the tiny Angel alleyway and sample The Prairie Oyster made from re-clarified tomato juice that looks like an egg yolk, horseradish vodka and shallots.
