Is that a Slice of Bacon in Your Cocktail? At the Milestone London It Is
Flowers, fruits, and other sweets we see served a lot with hotel cocktails, but whither the options for those that prefer their treats to be savory?
The Milestone Hotel London seems to have wondered the same, with their “Shock Me” beer cocktail bringing some balance this month. The cocktail mixes 75ml of Brown Ale (Bishop Fingers), 50ml bourbon, 25ml of Southern Comfort, and one teaspoon of maple syrup. Stirring for 10 seconds with ice, it’s served in an Old Fashion glass over ice and finished with a slice of crispy maple-cured bacon. The “Shock Me” costs £15 ($25 and is served in Stables Bar or elsewhere in the public spaces.
A second beer option, though this one is sweet, is the “Diplomatico Stout”, mixing 25ml mild dark rum, 15ml of Pedro Ximenez sherry, and 150ml of regular stout/Guinness with 15 ml of Chocolate Mozart. All of that goes into a straight tumbler glass over ice and served with Toblerone chocolate.
A Superior Double Room at the Milestone starts around £400 ($670) a night in August.
