Exclusive Summer Cocktails from Foxlow and Sipsmith

Once again, SEEN ventures on to the hot, thirsty streets of London to bring you the very best in summer cocktails. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. Everywhere you look, gin cocktails seem to be the order of the day, so why not try the iconic Sipsmith brand at the Foxlow restaurants and bars in Clerkenwell, Stoke Newington (on their new terrace no less), Chiswick (also with a new terrace) and Balham? The cocktails will be available from Wednesday 6th July to Wednesday 21st September and are priced between £8 and £9.50.

Chiswick’s Sipsmith distillery has produced London Dry Gin, London Cup, Sloe Gin, Sipping Vodka and Damson Vodka. Foxlow’s bartenders (handily round the corner) have created a stunning menu of cocktails from these ingredients, perfect for Wimbledon, the Olympics or just sipping al fresco on those new terraces we just mentioned.

SEEN can’t wait to sample, well, any of them – especially when they’re available for £5 from 5 – 7pm on weekdays and Saturdays at Brunch. Never have hours been so happy. We’ll be choosing from the following:

• Chiswick Summer Punch: Prosecco, rhubarb, London Dry Gin and lemon
• 6 O’Clock Cup: Sipping vodka, watermelon, wild strawberry, bitters, and ginger ale.
• Strawberry Beret: London Dry Gin, strawberries, coconut water and Italian vermouth.
• Damson Vesper: Damson Vodka, elderflower and Whittern Farm Cassis
• Westside: London Dry Gin, lime, and fresh summer herbs.

SEEN can think of no finer combination than Sipsmith’s hand-made spirits and Foxlow’s cocktails. Pair them with Foxlow’s seasonal and locally produced food, freshly cooked and dedicated to small independent producers, and you have a memorable dining experience; no small feat in the teeming capital.

Dinny Hall: A Shining Star

SEEN had the privilege recently, of hearing iconic jeweller Dinny Hall speak about her life and career in jewellery and design. She started off in the seventies when jewellery didn’t have the profile it has now, so in that sense she was very much a pioneer. She hung out with the cool musicians of the …
