We all like to pretend that adulting is all glam n’ brunch – but the truth is, it’s more, as the French say, metro-boulot-dodo.
But when the daily routine gets too much, I know the perfect spot to escape it all…
Welcome to Mr Fogg’s, the Mayfair home of the fictional Victorian explorer of the name.
Stuffed to the gunnels with stuffed animals, hunting rifles, flags, maps and all sorts of bits and pieces Phileas alledgedly collected on his travels.
As it so happens, Mr Fogg’s is also home to some of the most creative cocktail masters in London – and quite the selection of spirits!
The latest addition to that impressive collection: the brand new, retro confectionary inspired Mr. Gladstone’s Curious Emporium fusion beverage range.
Think Rhubarb & Custard, Pear Drop, Pineapple Cube and Strawberry Bon Bon meet wine.
Playful and quirky, the new range is right at home at Mr Fogg’s!
If you have quite the sweet tooth, you’ll love them simply poured over ice.
If you like your drinks to be bit more tart, mix them with soda or tonic water.
You can also take it one step further and add a few secret ingredients to create your own extraordinary concoctions!
