The number 9 is a tricky little fella. 9 lives, 9 months, 9-to-5. One day you’re on cloud number 9, the next thing you know you’re dialing it three times in a row. Swivel these three nines around and you summon the devil, or drape yourself in diamonds and you’ll be dressing yourself to the nines. Neuf, neun, nueve, nuervo, nine.
Rousing the powers of the transcendent number 9, The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant in Knightsbridge, have introduced nine new autumnal cocktails to their quite marvelous roster.
Splitting their list into three iconic chapters their story of mixology, reads; Drinking With Dickens, Taste Of Brittan, and lastly, London Dandies,
Dickens devotes will note the reference to his grey matter in the remedy entitled ‘Satirical Mind’: as our favourite drink of the evening this bourbon-based elixir combines the smooth gentleman jack whiskey, frangelico liqueur and crusty loaf-worthy orange marmalade. Drink this whilst you get lost in a novel from a time gone by.
‘Pear Affair’ on the Taste Brittan list is a wanton swill. Served-up and looking all sexy in a Martini glass, this concoction expertly coaxes out the complementary flavours of Grey Goose La Poire, Martini Bianco, Aperol and St. Germain liqueur, and is then smothered with a frothy egg white topping. Sip this one – but go careful – you don’t want to smudge your lipstick.
The ‘London Dandies’ list is a drinks script, which speaks of the dapper lads from way back when, whom knew their P’s and Q’s. However the ‘If You Please’ has a trick or two up its sleeve. Throwing caution to the wind, the combination of flavours in this glass include the zesty flavours of Bacardi White, orange Curacao and cutting lemon juice, which is then sweetened with a splash of Orgeat syrup. Drink this one and wait for the evening to unfold.
The drinks menu at The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant is a novel hard to put down. With some complex characters and elite plots it’s a story you will want to be part of.
