Do try this at home!

While of course our cocktails are best enjoyed in the bar at aqua shard, expertly made by Myles Donneky’s highly-skilled team, we know that sometimes guests like to try making their favourite drink at home.

So with that in mind we’re delighted to share this video Myles made for top drinks industry title Difford’s Guide, in partnership with Ciroc Vodka, showing how to make a Ciroc Blue Stone cocktail in just a few simple steps!

The Ciroc Blue Stone is similar to our popular Frozen Vines cocktail, but uses fewer ingredients making it easier to execute at home. Watch Myles make it – and explain why he likes using Ciroc – then try it for yourself. Or of course, if you’d rather let our team do the work – which they’re very happy to do – come on up and see us in the bar.

As always, a warm welcome awaits!

Yorkshire Pudding Perfection!

Anthony Garlando gets a lesson in Yorkshire pudding making from Jean Wiltshire

With National Yorkshire Pudding Day approaching on Sunday 1st February, our chef Anthony Garlando – no stranger to making British classics, but also a perfectionist – enlisted the help of a true expert to ensure that his Yorkshires are the best they can be: our General Manager John Wiltshire’s mum, Jean!

Jean and John’s dad Godfrey were visiting London and took the time to visit aqua shard to share Jean’s recipe – actually Godfrey’s mother’s recipe, so it’s been in the family for generations! – and some helpful tips for making perfect Yorkshires.
