Cocktail of the week: Rum & Raisins

This is a balanced mix of Diplomatico, Brugal and Pyrat rum, touch of Cherry Brandy and a gentle sweetness of sugar. It should be stirred with passion and garnished with rum soaked raisins.

Skylounge is a luxury rooftop bar atop DoubleTree by Hilton at Tower Bridge, which offers both indoor and outdoor seating.
12 floors up, it boasts spectacular vistas of the city, including unbeatable views of The Shard, The Gherkin and Tower Bridge. Located just a short walk from Tower Hill station, and in walking distance of Bank, Monument and Liverpool Street stations, it is a perfect spot for after work drinks and chilled weekends.
Indoors, the wrap around lounge serves an extensive menu of cocktails, beers and wines, along with bar bites, platters and sumptuous afternoon teas. Outside, the Peroni Bar permanently occupies one of the terraces, whilst the other one transforms itself seasonally with pop-up residencies.
