Last summer, when we went to London, we went to a bar called Bourne & Hollingsworth. It’s one of those places that I had very fond memories of and wanted to bring my boyfriend to see. It’s a tiny place down a set of stairs. It’s extremely easy to miss. The small space is decorated like a grannies house and a lot of their drinks are served in teacups. If you manage to get a table, sitting listening, to the random music from the 90s is a treat. The best part about being there though it watching the bartenders make the drinks. They don’t put on a show of it, but they are meticulous in what they do. Each ingredient is carefully added, muddled or squeezed and the results are original and amazing. Given the price tag of the beverages, we only tried one drink each, but there were so many on the menu that looked amazing, and I’ve remembered a couple of them ever since.
There are two very exciting things about this post:
1- These recipes are finally up- I have been meaning to share them for almost a year- I’m sorry!
2- There is a special video at the end of the post that includes the story behind these drinks as well as the recipe itself. Please let me know if you enjoy it! It was a lot of fun to put together and I’m thinking of incorporating videos in more posts in the future.
