As we plunge into another lockdown, Hawksmoor are on hand again to make things just that little bit better. They've converted some of their best cocktails into bottled and canned versions and you can get them delivered anywhere in the UK.
Much as Hawksmoor is known for its steaks, the restaurant group is really almost as much about the cocktails too, so this is a very, very welcome development. Here's what you can get to bolster your drinks cabinet.
- Ultimate Dry Martini - Made with Hepple Gin, a top-secret blend of vermouths and a few drops of lemon oil made for Hawksmoor from lemons grown on Filicudi, a tiny island off Sicily.
- Sour Cherry Negroni - Hepple Gin, Rose Vermouth, Campari, Sour Cherry
- Fuller-fat Old Fashioned - One of Hot Dinners' all-time favourite cocktails featuring brown butter into bourbon. Sweetened with tonka bean and with barrel-aged Woodford Reserve. It's amazing.
- Hepple Gimlet - Flavoured with a cordial made with blackcurrant leaves foraged from Hepple in Northumberland.
- Ginza Highball (canned) - A blend of Johnny Walker Black Label, distilled quince, apple and lemon verbena soda.
- Hawksmoor Calling (canned) - A mix of the Hawksmoor Collins and Milk & Honey’s London Calling - made with honey and chamomile-infused gin, lemon and a touch of dry sherry, topped up with soda.
- Back Burner (canned) - Spicy margarita - a blend of Mezcal, Tequila and distilled pasilla chilli bring smoke, heat and punch, with added tang from homemade pineapple soda.
- 20/20 Cosmo - a take on the ‘80s classic with the additional complexity of orange wine and a big hit of fizz.
You can buy the bottles as a set or individually, and the cans come as a set. And you might as well get a steak box while you're there.
If a lockdown is what it takes to get a bottle of Fuller Fat Old Fashioned in our hands, we'll accept it, frankly.
