We got invited to a cocktail launch event at The Oast House, Spinningfields, to try the new cocktails!
All classics brought up to efficiency by pre mixing and sorting them in small tanks to hook up to a tap, making busy happy hour days run a lot smoother. The tanks are big enough to make it convenient for the bar, but small enough to retain the freshness when a new tank is switch in. Which is important for the taste!
Everyones inital reaction is that it would effect the taste, however rest assured it tastes just as good as your usual beloved classics!
My favourites are the Strawberry Daiquiri for the great strawberry taste, The Long Island Iced Tea, and Sex On the Beach for a nice juicy start into the night.
I would then move onto a margarita for the long sips that taste great with the salted glass!
We then got invited behind the bar to create our own draught cocktails! It was as easy as 1,2,3.
To make a Long Island Iced Tea: I started by adding lots of ice to a glass, poured in 200ml of the premix from the tap and then topped it up with Pepsi. Simple! It took half the amount of the usual time of 25 seconds to making it from scratch, and I didn’t have to memorise a recipe!
Although I would have preferred the drinks more chilled being so warm outside, and having a cocktail shaken up fresh in front of you adds that special something. It cuts waiting time at the bar dramatically, making more time to enjoy drinks out with friends!
