This evening I made my second cocktail ever! The first was a Margarita at a Sri Lankan hotel bar, which I was invited to stand behind; the second was a Lychee Martini behind La Brasserie‘s bar in Chelsea.
Until Friday 12th August, La Brasserie is celebrating Cowes week by offering its customers the opportunity to make their own cocktail which they don’t have to pay for. So you can step behind the bar, learn how to make your own martini and not have to pay for it. Triple win and so much fun!
Admittedly, I did ask myself why I deserved to celebrating Cowes week, having minimal sailing experience and given that I was nowhere near the Isle of Wight. But then I remembered the bf used to race yachts, having sailed the Fastnet three times. So, as we learned to make our martinis and sipped them accordingly, I listened to his racing stories and as a result, felt very comfortable sitting in a Chelsea bar rather than having to start my night watch for the round Britan race, for example.
But if you don’t end up making your own martinis, it’s worth trying La Brasserie’s cocktails if you haven’t already! I only blog about cocktails I truly enjoy or in one instance, found repugnant; anything in between is simply ‘meh’.
