I took these dusky Hipsta-shots in the hidden gem of a cocktail bar, called Purl. Imagine Victorian themed molecular mixology and you are getting close. You need to book a table and then order some rather ‘different’ cocktails such as a Martini with a twist of lemon “detonated” over your glass with a popped balloon, or heavily (and very literally!) smoke infused rums and gins.
But my favourite (see bottom right) was the rather pricey ‘Cigar Box’ with the exquisite Blue Label, sherry aged sugar and salted and bitter chocolate on the side. Most of the cocktails were very reasonably priced and even the Cigar Box was worth every penny – I highly recommend!
