Tanqueray TEN tests our bar team!
Posted on June 17, 2014 by admin
Anyone who’s joined us for cocktails in the bar at aqua shard will know that our cocktail list is innovative, unusual and – alongside some classics – features many drinks that simply can’t be found anywhere else. One way we achieve this is by constantly challenging our team to come up with new ideas, and there were plenty of those at a recent competition organised by Tanqueray No. TEN gin.
Bars manager Myles Donneky and Tanqueray brand ambassador Tim Homewood set the team the task of creating a cocktail – based on Tanqueray No. TEN, of course – to be served in the unique bespoke goblet that he been designed exclusively for the bar at aqua shard. The twist? Each cocktail also had to be complemented by an edible accompaniment or garnish!
There were (appropriately!) ten very strong entries, but the top three places were taken, in reverse order, by Joe’s ‘The Last Sip’, Jill’s ‘Tiny Dancer’ and Edo’s ‘Licorice Ten’ – accompanied by licorice allsorts! Each winner will see their cocktail and name go on the cocktail list for four months; Edo additionally won a new design bottle of Tanqueray No. TEN, one of very few currently in the country, to enjoy – responsibly! – at home.
We hope that you will enjoy trying Edo, Jill and Joe’s winning combinations for yourselves when they join the other bespoke Tanqueray No. TEN cocktails on our tempting list!
What’s your favourite cocktail – and what edible accompaniment do you like to have with it? We’d love to know – tell us in the Comments!
