Fairy Liquid, SW3


I just saw this press release – The Brompton Bar and Grill will launch London’s first ever absinthe bar in Knightsbridge. “On arrival absinthe-minded guests will be shown into the chic and stylish bar area where leather bar stools, a zinc topped bar and modern art pieces are combined with authentic Parisian sketches harking back to the days when absinthe was the drink of choice amongst bohemians such as Oscar Wilde, Vincent van Gogh and Toulouse-Lautrec. Despite its nineteenth century heritage, the absinthe served will have many contemporary twists with cocktails including the Absinthe Caipirihna, a blend of Absinthe La Clandestine, Brown Sugar and Lime Juice and the Absinthe Daiquri, a heady mix of Rum, Campari, Absinthe Butterfly, Sugar and Lime Juice. Other more classic absinthe cocktails will include Hemingway’s favourite tipple, Death in the Afternoon, a daring fusion of Champagne and Absinthe Angelique and Morning Glory Fizz, composed of Whisky, Absinthe La Clandestine, Egg White, Angostura Bitters and Soda, which was originally considered to be a breakfast drink but which we would definitely recommend for the evening!” 

Hmmm – is Knightsbridge the right place to be introducing the Green Fairy? I can’t see it myself but always ready to be proved dramatically wrong. Alarm bells were ringing when I spotted it was awarded “The It Room’ Award at The Tatler Restaurant Awards in 2010.”
