5 WAYS TO ENJOY LONDON COCKTAIL WEEK






London Cocktail Week is an annual event held by Drinkup London which takes place in October with events all over London every year.  The main hub of events are centred around two areas; Central London and East London.



Below I have listed 5 things to do at London Cocktail Week


1. BUY A FESTIVAL PASS TO GET ACCESS TO £6 COCKTAILS AT 300 BARS


In order to get the best out of the festival it’s best to purchase a pass which is available online. Once you have purchased and downloaded you pass you will be able to redeem £6 cocktail offer in bars,restaurants and hotels who are taking part in London Cocktail Week.


2. PREPARE

It is essential to prepare yourself who the day or week ahead eat well drink lots of water.  


Take advantage of the different experiences on offer by purchasing meals with your drinks and drinking water when possible. An example of this is eating a balance meal which includes healthy fats, food full of vitamin c and protein such the avocado toast below.




3. VISIT THE COCKTAIL VILLAGE


The Cocktail Village is the hub of London Cocktail Week which is free for those with a London Cocktail Week festival pass.  If you haven’t downloaded one you can by it at the door.





The festival line up includes :
Fever Tree Mixers, Beefeater Gin, Rémy Martin Cognac + Cointreau, Schweppes Mixers, Peroni, Tails Cocktails, Tanqueray Gin and Tia Maria Coffee Liqueur. St Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch Whisky and Ketel One Vodka. Virgin Airways, Don Julio Tequila, Monin Syrups, Ital Spirits,Cockspur Rum,Kyrö Distillery Company and Roe & Coe Irish Whiskey.



The Cocktail village also contains three separate spaces the Back Yard Market, Brick Lane Yard and The Boiler House.  That will host a wide from of experiences including tastings, bar takeovers, masterclasses and specialist cocktails that will have a higher price point than £6.  

Yet there are 40 different types of cocktails priced at £6 inside the Cocktail village. So your pass will really go a long way and save you a great deal throughout the week.



4. DRINK NO ALCOHOL  AND LOW ALCOHOL COCKTAILS





Low alcohol and no alcoholic cocktails are in demand as much as regular cocktails now.   As many people choose to drink less alcohol or to include less sugar in their diets yet this no long means that cocktails are of the menu.  I tried this delicious low alcohol cocktail which contains kombucha and St-Germain elderflower liqueur (below).



5.GRAB YOU HANGOVER CURE




This could be a homemade smoothie, a protein filled brunch such as a scrambled tofu on toast or a grilled vegan full English to fuel your body after a workout. You can also opt for another high protein meal option or any other healthy breakfast option that will help to regain some vital nutrients that your body requires.
