Happy Summer 2019 to you all! Need some drink tips? I thought so! Here’s one for you to try; today I’m here to tell you about the new Honey & Rum…er….rum, by Burning Barn Rum. I like honey and I like rum so this surely has to be a winner, it’s self described as ‘liquid gold in a bottle’ so my job is to see if this is true or false.
Last Winter, Fork My Piehole took a trip to the concrete jungle that is New York City. We’ve both been to NYC before but, as we’d already done most of the touristy bits, this time we had the pure aim of consuming as many goodies as we possibly could. We’d heard of Please Don’t Tell from friends and online and it was a definite ‘need to visit’ on our list.
This is a non-reservation bar and quite exclusive; we had to call for a table non-stop for a good ten minutes to get through the phone lines. We’d tried the previous day with no joy – we did call a bit later (you have to call when they open at 3pm), so learned our lesson and set an alarm to remind us to book – and having limited time in NYC this was our last chance! Luckily we got through and booked a table. So, as it would make sense, we made our way to the East Village for our slot at 9pm.
Welcome to the Koko Kanu Frequent Flyer’s Cocktail Club! Inspired by the era of jet-set travel, this Summer we have Koko Kanu inviting Londoners and travel fans on a delicious journey to 6 wonderous bars throughout July. If you aren’t sure who Koko Kanu are… well, they’re the UK’s leading white rum blended with coconut flavour (a nice 37.5%) so really you should know who these guys are. Nip down to your local supermarket and peruse their wares.
So what is this Frequent Flyer’s Cocktail Club? What does it all mean? Well keep on reading and you’ll find out!
December! That means Christmas! It also means Repeal Day – dost ye know what that is? No? Well let me tell you with the help of Evans & Peel and Old Forester bourbon who have teamed up to bring you a bespoke cocktail – The Executioner! *trembles in boots*
So, Repeal Day is the day Prohibition ended in the United States in 1933 and therefore, being a speakeasy and all, Evans & Peel are the perfect partner to snuggle up to. This literal underground bar is nestled unassumingly in a street less than 10 minutes from Earl’s Court tube and I couldn’t wait to see what it was all about!
Everyone loves a bargain, right?
Everyone loves free stuff, right?
Well, Drinki is the app for you.
Available in London, this app allows you one free cocktail a night at select bars throughout the city. You don’t get to pick the cocktail but the app will tell you the selected cocktail so it isn’t going to be a surprise or disappointment.
