This would explain why the Hoxton Pony wasn't over flowing with far-out trend setters and I didn't feel too self-conscious with my girly hair and dress and ordering a Vanilla Sky martini.
So this cocktail had Belvedere Vodka, vanilla syrup, lemon juice, mint and apple juice served in a very traditional non-quirky martini glass. I liked this drink. It was refreshing and the vanilla gave it a different twist to a normal citrus type cocktail. Whilst good it wasn't anything amazing to write home about (just on this blog will do...).
Then I had a Louisiana Jam Jar. Mainly because it said it was going to be served in a jar and I like a bit of novelty. Also because anything to do with the south always reminds me of Gone with the wind (note: all time favourite film) and also because it had apricot jam in it, along with Southern Comfort, lemon juice, Orgeat syrup (made from almonds, sugar and rosewater) and apple juice. I like the idea of apricot in a cocktail and I've never had it. The drink was nice, I liked it but again I wasn't massively blown away.
The Hoxton Pony was good, music was good. Cocktails were good and if I go again will try a couple more and I'd like to think I didn't look entirely out of place in Shoreditch.
