Who hasn’t been to a Hawksmoor? If you haven’t, then you need to get yourself to one now.
Hawksmoor Spitalfields, which is part of a small chain of eight venues perhaps better known for its steaks, has been voted onto the Top 50 Cocktail Bars 2018 list by bartenders and drinks experts from across the UK.
The cocktail menu consists of five sections, with a well-thought-out selection of drinks in each. The sections include: Anti-Fogmatics, Pre-Prandials, Bridging Drinks, Cards & Cigars and Disco Drinks. Prices across all the sections range from £9.50 to £13.25.
From the Disco Drinks menu, the Cup of Gold (£12) is made using Havana Seleccion de Maestros, pear, lime, absinthe and pineapple.
Full-Fat Old Fashioned (£13.25) on the cards and cigars menu, is made with butter-infused Evan Williams Bottled-in-Bond and Sugar Features home-made butter-infused Bourbon. We’re told it is “painstakingly” made over long hours.
Hawksmoor was founded by Will Beckett and Huw Gott 12 years ago, after the pair had worked together in London Kitchens.
