Cocktail Of The Week: Blackberry Fizz


Set just off London’s Regent St, the Living Room is a trendy bar and restaurant situated perfectly for people watching.

It has the sort of Ladies’ loos you’d expect at Stephen Fry’s house – with Axminster carpet on the walls and Radio 4 piped through the ceiling – but the main reason to visit is their their new cocktail menu.

This week’s Cocktail of the Week – the Blackberry and Rosemary Fizz – is a quirky combo of herbs and berries plus two types of gin. ‚Ä®Barman Lucas told us that the new trend is to serve summer cocktails in a wine glass – so who are we to argue? This one comes full of crushed ice, like a grown up Slush Puppie.
