London Cocktail Week 2014
06.10.14 by Caitlin Liebenberg
Celebrating the quintessential cocktail culture of London at its best, Graphic is proud to announce it’s involvement in this fundamentally fantastic event. Joining forces with Bols Genever and Bols Yoghurt, we celebrate the flavours of the past alongside the sights and sounds of the here and now – as usual, you can expect only the best from your favourite London Gin bar.
Up first next week we present Juniper Club, the place for gin aficionados and newbies alike. We come together at the start of London Cocktail Week (Monday 6th) to explore the offering of Bols Genever, an award-winning classic cocktail spirit combining the mixability of a white spirit and the complexity of a brown spirit. With an original recipe dating back to 1820, renowned for its sipping and mixing qualities, we’ll explore the rediscovered flavour of Bols Genever together, through a tasting, an education, a great G&T and finishing with a cocktail. Starting at 19:00, this is a class you do not want to skip.
For a delinquently delicious sip back in time, we offer Bols Yoghurt Milk Bottles. Remember school lunches, childhood fun and friendships, having no worries in the world? Join us during London Cocktail Week and relive the experience of care-free days by sipping on a moreish Milk Bottle, compliments of Bols and available at Graphic bar. Throughout the entire week, at the Bols Pop Up bar, Seven Dials, and Graphic Bar, Golden Square, saintly lads and lassies will be handing out casino chips to transport you back to your youth... with a kick of course. Present your free Bols casino chip to one of the lovely bartenders at Graphic and receive a complimentary milk bottle cocktail. It’s time to untuck your shirt, muss up your hair, and take a pop at being a kid again –we promise not to tell Mum.
Finally, let us present “Ginception – Genever Mai Tai Madness”. A party inside a bar inside a bar -Bols Genever pops up INSIDE Graphic Bar to bring the madness of £4 Mai Tai joy to the taste buds of Cocktail lovers -for the whole of London Cocktail Week! We fall into the wild Polynesia of the 1930’s, with a pre-prohibition cocktail where the name “Maita’i roa ae!” actually means “Out of this world!”... with that moniker, you can’t afford to keep it straight-laced. Ginception brings DJ’s and bartenders mixing side by side, 5pm - midnight Thursday through Saturday, concocting the perfect party pleasures for your senses, set amidst the works of epic urban artists in the heart of Soho. Bring yourself, bring your friends and the friends of your friends, and ensure you enjoy the dream combination of Graphic Bar and Bols Genever.
