Sherry Cobbler & Strawberry Collins: an evening of forgotten cocktails

Sherry Cobbler & Strawberry Collins: an evening of forgotten cocktails

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 22nd Nov 2017

‘[Mr Tapley] produced a very large tumbler, piled to the brim with little blocks of clear transparent ice, through which one or two thin slices of lemon, and a golden liquid of delicious appearance, appeared from the still depths below, to the loving eye of the spectator.’— Martin Chuzzlewit, Charles Dickens

Sherry Cobbler and Strawberry Collins are just two of many cocktails Charles Dickens discovered in America. But many of these ‘wonderful inventions’ have fallen out of our drinking tradition. On the eve of American Thanksgiving come and indulge in these forgotten gems!

Our friends at the London Gin Club will lead you in a tasting of three rare, classic cocktails from 19th century America that Dickens enjoyed on his visits and wrote about in American Notes and Martin Chuzzlewit.

You can then explore the house in which Dickens lived before retiring to the bar for further refreshment.

Cost: £20
