The Roaring ‘20s are back, at least in cocktail form, at London’s luxury boutique hotel The Milestone, located across from Kensington Palace and Gardens, and close to Knightsbridge shopping. The Twenties ushered in an era of decadence and prosperity, so who wouldn’t want to drink to that? The Milestone’s Stables Bar and Conservatory are shaking up jazz age martinis, along with The Daisy (highball) and The Gatsby (gin + vermouth martini) cocktails. So when in London, pop in and say Bottoms Up!
Don’t forget to order the Flapper Platter, rife with ‘20s faves such as crab-stuffed mushrooms with Parmesan, and the quirkily named Rinktum Diddy (eggs, onions, tomatoes, Tabasco, cheese, and Worcestershire sauce).
Other offerings throughout the summer are an award-winning British vocal group called BLAKE, and fashion editor Hilary Alexander, who will highlight fashion’s role in the twenties resurgence. We have a feeling Fitzgerald’s Gatsby would approve.
