Cheers to Shakespeare!
To commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death this April, TwoRuba bar at Hilton London Tower Bridge invites you to embrace your inner bookworm, and raise a glass to the greatest English writer that ever lived, with a bespoke collection of shaken cocktails, blended with seasonal spring fruity flavours.
The boozy Bard cocktails are available from now until 30 April and include specials such as the Mint Julep Caesar (£11) a bourbon-based tipple with freshly muddled blackberries and a dash of crème de cassis, cutting through the toasty wood and coffee flavours and complementing the sweet spicy notes of Kentucky’s favourite brown liquid.
Other fabulous drinks we enjoyed included the Two Ruba or Not To Be (£11) (apricot marmalade, apricot liquour, Appleton Rum, lime and sugar syrup); A Rose by Any Other Name (£11) (Southern Comfort, peach liquour, port, lime and sugar, cranberry juice, rosemary and blackberries - our personal favourite) and last but not least, Juliet (£11) (Campari, Martini Rosato, raspberry liquour, sugar, lime, orange juice and raspberries).
We loved the attention to detail that was paid detail for each and every drink, including the charming Shakespeare-inspired poems that accompanied the cocktails. I think it's easy to say that the man himself would have been proud of the cocktail collection that was created in his honour.
