Slug and Lettuce will be marking London Cocktail Week with a special list of drinks at its bars across the capital.

Its 15 bars in London will offer a mini list under the banner of “Colours” with six cocktails and four shot-tails, all created with colour in mind.

The vibrant green Midori Sour combines Midori, lime juice, gomme and a lime wedge served over crushed ice, while Blue Monday (pictured) is made with Absolut vodka, Bombay Sapphire gin, blue curaçao and lemonade with a lemon twist running through it, served in a Martini glass.

Also served in a Martini glass is the Mango Sunrise, using Absolut Citron lemon vodka, Absolut Mango, pineapple juice and grenadine, giving it a two-toned orange look.

Captain’s Blackbeard, described as “the cocktail for the man about town”, is a served in a tall glass and contains Morgan’s Spiced rum, Coca-Cola and Guinness.

The Red-Red Bull (pictured) is a perfect pick-me-up to start a night-out and is sweeter than Captain’s Blackbeard, comprising Smirnoff Red vodka, Chambord, cranberry juice and Red Bull Red Edition and served with a lime wedge and straw over cubed ice.

The last two colour-themed cocktails both contain Smirnoff vodka and Tia Maria: the White Russian is completed with Half and Half while the Black Russian has a touch of Coca-Cola added (pictured).

Completing the colour theme is a selection of four Absolut vodka shot-tails, Mandarin, Vanilia, Raspberri and Citron, which are available with a choice of mixer.

The list will run alongside its classic selection of cocktails to tie in with London Cocktail Week which is from October 6 to 12. For more details of London Cocktail Week, visit www.londoncocktailweek.com.

Nicola Stuart, brand development manager for Stonegate Pub Company’s Slug and Lettuce bars, said: “Slug and Lettuce is synonymous with cocktails and so we we’ve pulled out all the stops for a special list in time for London Cocktail Week.

“Our latest mini list, which perfectly complements our classic cocktail selection, is available in the bars now. Our mixologists have had some fun with the ‘colour’ theme and have created some brilliantly vibrant and delicious cocktails.”
