A London restaurant called Rocket recently launched 4 cocktails inspired by the famous novels of the British writer Roald Dahl. Since the International Book Day has just passed by we wanted to share with you these fantastic cocktails.
The Mr. Fox is a cocktail inspired by the 1968 novel of Dahl called Fantastic Mr. Fox. It is made from Ubrówka vodka, St Germain’s elderflower liqueur, carrot, lemon and apple juice. Yummy!
The second cocktail inspired by the author is called The Witches from the novel of the same name published back in 1983. Its preparation uses Havana Club rum, Koko Kanu coconut rum, blueberries cream liqueur, blueberries and lemon juice.
Fans of Marvelous Medicine by this remarkable writer can enjoy this option with a blue shiny appearance. It’ss made from Whitley Neill gin, Blue Curaçao, peach liqueur, lemon juice and syrup.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
And finally, the fourth cocktail is inspired by nothing more and nothing less than Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. For this sweet and delicious cocktail, we use Chivas Regal Whiskey, El Dorado rum, Mozart chocolate liqueur and chocolate ice cream. Very delightful.
The initiative is part of a collaboration with Broadgate Circle in support of its spring campaign “Literary Greats”. Broadgate Circle is a circle formed in London that brings together restaurants, cafes, bars, street food vendors and gyms where you can eat, have a nice time and join the trend of novel-inspired cocktails.
So, if you’re passing through London, stop and visit one of these bars and let yourself be seduced by the city’s literary side. Although, if you just want to try them out, with a little creativity and skill you can mix them easily at home.
