The Goring launches 1920s-inspired cocktails
The Goring cocktail bar has launched live music and 1920s-inspired cocktails
The Goring cocktail bar has launched live music and 1920s-inspired cocktails on Sundays.
The Roaring Goring at the historic Belgravia bar is a weekly celebration of live music and prohibition-era cocktails inspired by the drinks and events of the decade.
From 6pm every Sunday, the recently refurbished bar is hosting musicians playing jazz favourites and classics of the 1920s.
To accompany the songs and setting, bar manager Tiago Mira and his team have developed a list of five 1920s-themed cocktails.
The Air Mail references the transatlantic postal delivery service that began in 1918 and is a drink of Havana Club 3 Year Old Rum, lime, honey, Ayala Champagne and Green Chartreuse. The Goring’s Hanky Panky, which was first created by The Savoy’s head bartender Ada Coleman in the early twentieth century, incorporates No.3 London Dry Gin, Mancino Rosso Amaranto and Fernet Branca. Meanwhile, The Scofflaw, made with Lot 40 Canadian Rye, Mancino Secco Vermouth, lemon, grenadine and orange bitters epitomises the prohibition era: in 1923 The Boston Herald ran a competition asking readers to coin a new term for “a lawless drinker” with Scofflaw chosen as the winner out of 25,000 entries.
To accompany the cocktails and music, guests can enjoy The Goring’s bar menu, which has been created by chef Nathan Outlaw, who also runs Siren, the hotel’s new seafood restaurant positioned next to the bar. Bar bites include crab scones; cream cheese & herb puffs; charcuterie with pickles or the hotel’s selection of caviars served with blini and sour cream.
