Best signature cocktails in London?

DollyDagger | Dec 23, 2007 03:49 AM

A strange request, I know. I'm looking for (decent) cocktails that are unique to / created by / named after the London bar / venue they're served in.

Particularly looking for cocktail bars with innovative concoctions in the West End - Soho, WC1, Covent Garden, Holborn, Piccadilly Circus, etc.

Random recommendations for excellent cocktail bars equally welcome.

Here are some of the best signature cocktails I've discovered so far:

Jewel Bar's 'Jewel In The Crown' - an exotic blend of Finlandia vodka, melon and passion fruit liqueurs, fresh lemon and cranberry juice.

The Pigalle Club (Picadilly Circus)- Golden Pigalle martini - an intoxicating blend of Galliano, crème de cacao and milk, finished with a dusting of cinnamon.

Detroit (Covent Garden) - the Detropolitan - citrus vodka, cointreau, cassis, cranberry juice, lime juice.

The Electric Birdcage (Haymarket) - Electric Iced Tea - our version of an age old drink Absolut Vodka, Bombay Sapphire, Bacardi 8, Jose Cuervo Tequila, triple sec, Chambord, lemon juice with a dash of gomme syrup, topped up with champagne.

Any other cocktail afficionados out there?
