Of course, we live in London and this means that having a resurgence in cocktails will only be enough for so long. Give it a year or so and you’re going to get things like this popping up in the bid to have the biggest cocktail bar selling point.
The tobacco reasoning is thus – if nicotine is put into the drinks the smokers will have less need to disappear outside every 20 minutes to smoke. And it could work, but will they be nice? We have yet to sample them so afraid we can’t vouch but feel free to pop down there yourself and report back.
The meat side of things is interesting given that a bloody mary really doest go well with a bit of bacon on a fragile morning after. Shaka Zulu are also of course kings when it comes to making meat and so who better to take this on.
We’ll be popping to the opening of the Shaka Zulu bar later this week so we’ll be able to report back.
In the mean time get those taste buds ready for a new flurry or strangely tweaked cocktails coming towards you from all angles and the trends catch on.
