Fairy tales inspire new Drake & Morgan cocktails

Georges Marvellous MedicineCocktails inspired by fairy tales and children’s stories have been added at Drake & Morgan’s six bars across London to bring a magical winter feel to the menu.

They include the Princess in the Tower, which is a classic champagne cocktail with an uplifting addition of violet and peach bitters, while the Prince Charming is a punchy blend of spiced rum, pomegranate juice and a unique chai-infused syrup served in an elegant champagne coupe.

The Sugar Plum Fairy, named after a character in the Christmas ballet favourite The Nutcracker, is a mix of gin, cherry liqueur, lemon and plum bitters, all served with a frozen plum.

George’s Marvellous Medicine (pictured), inspired by Roald Dahl’s modern classic, is a fruity and floral mix of vodka, poppy liqueur, apple juice and poppy seeds, all served in a swing top “potion” bottle.

The cocktails, priced from £6.95 to £8.95, have been created by Drake & Morgan’s resident mixologist Chris Edwards, based at The Parlour in Canary Wharf.

They are available not only at The Parlour but also at The Refinery in Bankside and The Happenstance, The Drift, The Anthologist and The Folly in the City of London.

Drake & Morgan has also introduced tasty new sharing boards across the estate. Life Is Too Short To Be Shellfish, costing £19.95, boasts a selection of prawn lollipops, crispy squid, lobster and parmesan croquettes, and flatbreads.

Another sharing board is To Share Or Not To Share, also at £19.95, which comes laden with chicken satay sticks, mini burgers, hotdogs and potato wedges.
