BIg Smoke Cocktail at W Lon

W London's mixologist, Eric Le Pape, has created a unique gentleman's cocktail to celebrate London Collections:Men,'The Big Smoke', to help busy fashion week goers wind down and relax.

Join the stylish gentlemen of London to celebrate the best of British fashion at W London – Leicester Square by sampling ‘The Big Smoke’, a sleek and sophisticated cocktail inspired by London Collections: Men.

Infused with orange, this distinguished drink is a smooth combination of Grand Marnier Liquor and Jack Daniels Whisky, especially created by W London’s expert mixologist Eric Le Pape. Topped with a dash of Angostura Bitters, ‘The Big Smoke’ is served up on large cuts of ice in a beautifully-designed ‘Rock’ glass.

The smoky flavour, combined with a sweet orange peel garnish, creates a crisp concoction that will make the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of London Collections: Men. In homage to the hotel’s interior design which is inspired by the dual personality of the Brit (think buttoned up by day and let loose by night), this dapper drink celebrates the suave Savile Row through to the exploratory East End.

Guests can wind down in between shows in the comfort of the laid-back W Lounge bar, taking in the impressive views of London – the epicentre of men’s fashion.

‘The Big Smoke’ cocktail will be available at the W Lounge bar at W London – Leicester Square for £14.50 from June. For more information visit: www.wlondon.co.uk
