FIVE days until July Issue launch!

FIVE days until July Issue launch!

As lovers of all things sweet and alcoholic us Kit Girls enjoy nothing more than discovering hidden cocktail bars that merge our two passions, so when we were invited to Apples & Pears cocktail tasting night we jumped at the chance.
Hidden at the end of Brick Lane Apples & Pears has been steadily building up a fan base of true cocktail connoisseur thanks to their unique almost Willy Wonka-esq drinks menu. Head Bar Tender, (or should that be Mixologist?) Carlos has created some truly delicious and unconventional drinks to excite and enchant following an almost scientific trial and error system. First up was the playfully named ‘Fat Gobbler’ consisting of buttered wild turkey, Cocchi Americano and sweetcorn, yes we were excepting half a Thanksgiving turkey to come out too. What did emerge was a tumbler of golden delight, slightly sweet with a warming sensation, defiantly one I will be trying again. What really made it stand out was its thicker almost melted butter like texture, which Carlos told us is due to the buttered turkey element. A long glass of ‘Palomino’ followed and although not to my taste my friend mentioned it could be a good alternative to Pims with its tequila and Asahi mixed flavours and hints of grapefruit bitters. Next up was my real winner of the night the ‘Tincup Rocky’. A whisky based drink with lemon and black pepper sherbet, fig liqueur and lemonade. Not usually a fan of whisky this one was sweet and almost creamy with an accompanying dried fig and almond on the side for nibbling. Like all great magicians Carlos left his best trick ‘till last and stunned us by producing the ‘Smoking Savage’ a perplexing mix of Quiquiriqui Mezcal, Somerset Cider Brandy, basil and coriander. Sprinkled with pistachio, it had an almost smoky bacon like taste. As a fan of a good fried breakfast I was impressed and delighted at the nutty pistachio texture that followed with every sip. By this point we were giddy with four cocktails under our belts and headed home.

Having not visited Apples and Pears before I can safely say I will be coming back with those who I know will appreciate a good cocktail. Having only tried a small number of drinks on the extensive menu I am sure there must be more gems to find and more ‘Fat Gobblers’ to enjoy.
