Valentine’s Day cocktails (1)

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


My Martini for two at Brown’s

Valentine’s Day is supposed to be all about sharing your love, right? So why not literally get into the spirit of things with a sharing cocktail at one of our favourite bars? 

At The Donovan’s Bar at Brown’s Hotel, impress your lover and order the special My Martini (£20), devised by Adam Lahham specially for Valentine’s Day. Comprising two wee bottles of Bombay Sapphire gin and Belvedere vodka served on ice as well as lemon twists, silverskin onions and olives, the specially prepared tray is brought to your table for you to  prepare for your amore. Spritz with the dinky atomiser filled with vermouth and you’re done.
A bottle of Manhattan for 2 (or 4) at Hawksmoor

If dark spirits are more your thing, try the delicious Bottle of Manhattan for two (£17.50) on the menu at Hawksmoor. The warming blend of bourbon, vermouth, Maraschino, Angostura Bitters and a dash of absinthe is served on an antique tray with cubes of ice, long swirls of orange peel and scrummy house-infused cherries.
