Cocktail of the week: Elderflower & Earl Grey Fizz
It’s fair to say that this is a cocktail of dual character: feminine and elegant, yet zesty and punchy, it is one of West London’s favourite cocktail offerings. Featuring the instantly recognizable Early Grey aromas of bergamot orange, lemon and grapefruit, topped up simply with soda’s fizz and energy, it is cool, clean and classical.
No.11 Pimlico Road’s Elderflower and Earl Grey Fizz particularly befits its stylish surroundings – both inside amongst No.11’s sleek interiors and furnishings; and outside, where Pimlico’s stylish townhouses and boutique shops are abundant.
If you’re looking for a new tipple to enjoy with friends over a light lunch, afternoon tea or alongside some crisp canapes, this is the cocktail for you.
