Good behaviour or not, you are out on bail. Time to celebrate. Joining all the usual suspects in the freshly released Mary, is reposado tequila, thyme and some salty pickles!

Transylvanian Drag Queen

This vampire queen has a sneaky secret. Filled with gin, blood orange juice and sweetening you up with a touch of sugar...she pounces when you least expect with an absinthe bite.

World’s Best Bars Review

Drayton serves a modern interpretation of classic drinks, influenced by the season. Experience finest Berlin bar culture. This place is everything you expect from a Berlin bar of its kind: there’s a kind of clandestine, underground vibe to the place, like a speakeasy of old in all but name; it’s the kind of bar you don’t just stumble across, you need to told of its existence – preferably in whispered tones, a secret shared. Owned by the redoubtable Cookie, it’s a dark, nocturnal space, full of character and atmosphere. The drinks are superb; they make an excellent cocktail and the bar is well-stocked...

SPRING MENU IS ON THE WAY

IMG_0770

THIS FRIDAY IS THE DAY! WE ARE READY FOR YOU AT THE BAR. Winter..? What winter..? It seems that Spring is in a big hurry to get here and I are more than happy to welcome it. So happy in fact, that the Spring menu is almost ready to be dropped. This time I have decided to get back to basics and play around with some good old fashioned (excuse the pun) classics. So be a spring chicken and take a walk down the alley to be the first to try our new menu on Saturday March 1st. FRIDAY MARCH 7TH.   See you at the bar!

Full of the the new STARR in the bar, Chambord, fresh berries, spices and topped with a big scoop of bourbon vanilla ice cream.

The 10th Reindeer

It is called The 10th Reindeer… There is no more explanation to the name other than I was trying to think of something Christmassy, and this came out. Yummy spiced rum and triple sec, blood orange and chocolate, then pepped up with just a pinch of anis and chilli. Sure to make you fly.

Tocco Rosso

IMG_3768

Now this just looks like Christmas in a wine glass. All Campari red and mint green. Mixed with a touch of St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur and top with bubbly prosecco. One, or maybe two, will certainly get you into the festive spirit.

New York Sour

IMG_3755

  There is nothing like New York at Christmas time. Ice skating under the tree in Rockefeller Center. Store front windows decked with Christmas murals. But, unfortunately we are not in New York...so let's have a drink just to imagine we are there. With a generous float of red wine, this whiskey sour may sound a little irregular, but anything goes in 'The Big Apple' right?

Thirsty? I know, I know... However, patience is a virtue. And highly rewarded... I am currently working on a new menu for the fast approaching winter months. All I will tell you now is it is very rum influenced, belly warming and homely comforting... So tell your tastebuds wait just that little bit longer. We will be releasing the new menu at the start of December...
