London Fog


It’s grey and a the air has a little nip in it. So very London, but spring in Auckland. With that in mind (and with what was in the liquor cabinet) we decided on a London theme to take the edge off.

Started down the gin route, settling on a London Fog (not the coat – it’s not that cold) – a simple mix of Gin, Pernod and frappe-style ice. Possibly should be served in an old-school small red wine glass to give it that real air of authenticity.

Second up was a drink mixed up by Joe Gilmore for Sir Winston Churchill on one of his many visits to The Savoy, aptly named The Churchill.

Measures & Instructions:

  • 1.75 oz Gin
  • 0.5 oz Pernod

Mix Gin and Pernod together in mixing glass and pour in chilled martini or champagne coupe filled with crushed/shaved ice
