Slug and Lettuce, the high Street’s best known and loved cocktail bar operator is gearing up for a busy week as it celebrates London Cocktail Week (6-12 October).

The seventy-four strong bar operator with fifteen bars in London will be showcasing its latest themed cocktail list – COLOURS.

The mini cocktail list which runs alongside the classic extended selection of cocktails, includes six special ones and four shot-tails, all created with colour in mind.

The vibrant green ‘Midori Sour’ includes Midori, lime juice, Gomme and a lime wedge served over crushed ice, whilst ‘Blue Monday’ – Absolute vodka, Bombay Sapphire, Blue Curacao and lemonade with a lemon twist running through it – looks cool and sophisticated in a martini glass.

Also served in a martini glass, ‘Mango Sunrise’ is made with Absolut Citron, Absolut Mango, pineapple juice and Grenadine, giving it an enticing two-toned orange look. ‘Captain’s Blackbeard’, often described as the cocktail for the man-about-town, is a served in a tall glass and contains Morgan’s Spiced rum, Coca Cola and Guinness.

The ‘Red-Red Bull’ is the perfect pick-me-up start to any night out and is sweeter in taste than Captain’s Blackbeard, comprising, Smirnoff Red vodka, Chambord, cranberry juice, Red Bull Red and served with a lime wedge and straw, over cubed ice.

Black and White Russian make up the final colour themed cocktails – both containing Smirnoff vodka and Tia Maria. The ‘White Russian’ is completed with Half and Half, whilst the ‘Black Russian’ has a touch of Coca Cola added.
Completing the colour theme is a selection of four Absolut vodka Shot-tails, Manderin, Vanilla, Raspberi and Citron, available with a choice of mixer.

Speaking about the new mini cocktail menu Nicola Stuart, Brand development Manager for Slug and Lettuce said, “Slug and Lettuce is synonymous with cocktails and so we we’ve pulled out all the stops for a special list in time for London Cocktail Week. Our latest mini list, which perfectly complements our classic cocktail selection, is available in the bars now. Our mixologists have had some fun with the ‘colour’ theme and have created some brilliantly vibrant and delicious cocktails.”

All Slug and Lettuce bars offer cocktail master-classes for customers to learn the art of making cocktails, and of course, tasting them. They can be pre-booked in advance through the website
