What's Your Favourite Cocktail/Drink?
Beer is my number one in consumption, VB or Becks is my everyday beer of choice, do like the craft stuff but for your bog standard everyday beer then cant go past the 2 mentioned.

Do like the odd cocktail know and then if im on a cruise or at a resort somewhere topical, so the Long island iced tea (vodka, tequila, light rum, triple sec, gin, and a splash of coke) is my cocktail of choice.

If im on the spirits then a Johnny Walker Black on the rocks or a VAT with Grey goose is my preference.

Yes it s football weekend but no West Ham!!!

Yes those were the days. Most of my crowd at the time were in advertising..and yeah we never ate much either. It was hard keeping up with them. I sued to go to Cafe de Paris as well. And no I didn't get off with any supermodels. However my mate pulled Melissa George there one night it was after she's finished Home and Away.

Not sure when the Titanic Bar opened on top. Seem to remember is was pretty crap.

Used to hang out a lot in the Atlantic Bar in the 90s. I never ate there though.


Me too, that used to be our starting venue on a Friday night before heading off to Cafe de Paris or Emporium, only ate there once, most of the time I didn't really have an appetite whilst in there, for some unknown reason......

A mate of mine was head barman in Dicks Bar, hadn't seen him since school, he got a blowy from Mel C in the loos when Baby Spice had her 21st there.

The good old days!

Technically speaking I guess in the early 80s It had to be the Snakebite. I remember some pubs refused to sell it.

Re: What's Your Favourite Cocktail/Drink?
cheers Anon. Tempted to buy some online as it sometimes seems hard to get the more unusual spiced ones.

I got completely smashed in what I think was called The Port Shop in Lisbon.

I have a vague memory of trying a variation on the theme which I had never come across before. No details whatsoever have made it through the alcoholic fog.

Oh well, if I come across it again, It will be like a completely new experience.

I do remember talking to the woman in the shop about how rare it was for Portuguese people to drink port. Even her workmate didn't like it.

Swiss - my whole company got barred from the Atlantic Bar Christmas 1994 - the managers were openly doing coke so the bouncers threw us out.

Tanman, try chairman's reserve, it's a great spiced rum. I could only find it in Waitrose though

Kraken is nice and you'll find that in most bars these days, but if you fancy trying something a bit unusual look for Dark Matter, it's quite peppery with a lovely after taste.

Long Island Iced Tea is my favourite. Also love Spiced Rum and coke at present. Got a bottle of Captain Morgans Black spiced rum recently - that is really tasty stuff. Need to try a few more rarer spiced ones.

Dick Bradsell is responsible for many great creations, the Espresso Martini amongst them. Old friend of mine Olly Peyton named the private cocktail bar at the atlantic bar and grill after Dick, who helped establish it and train the staff there. Dick died a couple of years ago. lovely man.

Re: What's Your Favourite Cocktail/Drink?
I was just reading about Dick Bradsell the London bartender who created it. 1980s. Trying to remember that cocktail bar everyone went to in Covent Garden then?
