The Race For London: Cast Your Vote - Conrad London St. James’s Launches Mayoral Election Cocktails from April 5th-May 5th
LONDON - Located in the heart of Westminster, Blue Boar Bar at Conrad London St. James is the perfect location to mark the London Mayoral Election. The brand new cocktail list includes four politically inspired creations, Berry & Spice, The Early Bird, Khan's Old Fashioned, and Goldsmith's Utopia. The cocktails and their tongue-in-cheek descriptions were concocted by Roland Mandoki, Blue Boar Bar's resident mixologist, whose interpretation of character and political traits offers the perfect accompaniment to election conversation.
The Race for London cocktail collection include: Berry & Spice a combination of silver tequila, dry vermouth, tabasco and lime juice inspired by Sian Berry's hard-hitting climate policies, while The Early Bird, an interpretation of Caroline Pidgeon's pledge to halve tube fares before 7:30am, is breakfast tea, lemon juice, sugar, vodka and vanilla liqueur. Meanwhile, Khan's Old Fashioned is a traditional Campari and vodka mix with elderflower and Goldsmith's Utopia offers a sublime combination of gin and curacao blue with lemon, sugar and egg white, topped with orange twist and cherry.
According to Roland: "the inspiration behind the cocktails is to offer an experience to accompany the election atmosphere - conversation, connection and great cocktails in what is a richly political area."
Given its prime location in Westminster, the political hub of London and the UK, Blue Boar Bar is the first choice for many members of parliament and party leaders have visited on numerous occasions. The bar is styled around politics with Gerald Scarfe illustrations adorning many of the walls and corridors. and Blue Boar Bar is also home to an official House of Commons Division Bell which is used to call MP's back to vote in the case of a division in Parliament. Only certified establishments are permitted to have one and The Serjeant at Arms gave special permission for Blue Boar Bar to feature a Division Bell at the request of a group of sitting MP's.
The Race For London collection is available for any visitors to the Blue Boar to order from only £12 each, between April 5th and May 5th.
