Fashion Week Cocktails

Fashion + cocktails = greatest combination ever. After a really REALLY long day on Wednesday, I grabbed Cat and we headed over to One Aldwych for some fashion inspired cocktails and it was such a treat.

We went to The Lobby at One Aldwych and it has such a cool vibe - perfect for a few post work drinks. They've created a four bespoke fashion inspired cocktails, alongside Tanqueray Gin, and the drinks are all pretty special to coincide with fashion month.

There is a cocktail to match each of the big four Fashion Weeks: Calvin Klein (NY); Alice Temperley (London), Moschino (Milan) and Chanel (Paris).

We started off with La Dolce Vita - inspired by Moschino - and English Rose - inspired by Alice Temperley, and we were in love. Both were absolutely delicious and I particularly loved the cat glass that served La Dolce Vita. English Rose is essentially everything you want out of a cocktail - floral and delicate - while La Dolce Vita was a lot of fun to drink and was my perfect amount of sweetness.

We moved on to New York, New York - Calvin Klein - and Blanc et Noir - which were perfect ways to end the evening. New York, New York is refreshing and sophisticated, with a hint of bitterness, while Blanc et Noir was the clear highlight. It was absolutely delicious, with the perfect hint of lemon.
