Doing it Frank’s way

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


If Mr G could do a Doctor Who and step inside the tardis, he’d go back to circa. 1958 no question. The reason? So he could live it large, wear sharp suits and hang out with Frank and the Rat Pack.

He’s probably not the only one. That’s why the Sinatra Selects tour running this month to celebrate Jack Daniel’s birthday is guaranteed to be a hit. Not only does it take in some of Frank’s favourite London hangouts but it focuses on his favourite spirit, Jack Daniels and cranks it up a notch with the smooth, rich taste of special edition Sinatra Select. Taste-wise it’s something the guv’nor would most definitely have approved of. Although in the same family as Jack, think of it being like that older, wiser more knowing older brother – it’s JD buffed, manicured and wearing a bespoke suit.

So that’s the spirit, what about the tour? Actually, it’s a free-form thing which you can dip in and out of as you like. Choose from masterclasses in the Wine & Spirits shop, or enjoying a specially created Sinatra cocktail in Harry Gordon’s Bar, both at Selfridges (nip upstairs to the Designer Room and get kitted out in a Frank-style suit while you’re there).

Next, call in at the Punch Room at the London Edition hotel for a Sinatra  Punch (what else?), followed by dinner at his favourite London restaurant Santini. Menu tip: try the excellent Milanese with a side of spaghetti. Round it off with Sinatra’s preferred lemon posset dessert and you’ll receive a complimentary Sinatra on the rocks.

For those who really want to do it Frank’s way, it’s on to The Savoy where he not only performed on the Beaufort Bar stage but would stay on the many occasions he was in London. Feeling flush? Book the Sinatra Suite and receive a complimentary Sinatra on the rocks in the American Bar.
