Finally I got to catch up with my friends (MasterChef The Professionals runner-up) Sarah Knights, Chef Scott Wade and (Brooklyn Boy Bagels) Michael Shafran. Then three more of the girls from the last TV series turned up to join us. Gossip – we sure did over a cocktail or two or three.
The $16 cocktails are themed around the name of the bar. Between us we tried a few. We missed the Foreplay (Noilly Prat Vermouth, Martin Milers Gin – shaken not stirred) and got right down to matters. Sarah likes ginger beer so chose Playmaker, Scott went for Hendricks gin cocktail Secret Play and for starters I chose the stunning whisky double – Playboy (just in this instance for cocktails mind you – cause that’s not my kind of man) – with Glenmorangie 10yo Scotch, Laphroaig 10yo Scotch, shaved ginger, lemon and honey and a dash of orange juice, before moving on to more cocktails then Hendricks G+Ts complete with cucumber garnish.
