Seductive Sidekicks: Bond Girl Cocktails at TwoRuba at Hilton London Tower Bridge
“I never have more than one drink before dinner. But I do like that one to be large and very strong and very cold and very well-made” James Bond, Casino Royale (1953)
LONDON - To celebrate the new Bond film, Spectre, released this October Hilton London Tower Bridge’s cocktail bar, TwoRuba, has put together a special menu of signature cocktails inspired by some of the secret agent’s most compelling and iconic female companions – the Bond Girls – alongside social media secret code giveaways available from Monday 26th October until Sunday 8th November.
Bearing all the characteristics of the Bond beauties, these extremely tempting tipples are seductively sweet, uniquely different and pack a mean punch, including:
The Jill Masterson (£11)
Inspired by the character portrayed by Shirley Eaton who got painted in gold and died as a result, now immortalised in a tall gold glass in the shape of a woman’s torso filled with a sharp mix of Chambord, vodka, raspberry, mint, cranberry and lime.
The Kissy Suzuki (£13)
An exotic sip of lychee, lemon and apricot liqueur and topped up with Bollinger Champagne, this concoction is inspired by one of the first Asian Bond girls.
The Vesper Lynd (£11)
A recurring Bond character, Vesper Lynd has been portrayed by both Eva Green and Ursula Andress. The Vesper cocktail is a bona fide Bond creation, twisting his drink of choice, the Martini, in favour of a vodka, gin and Lillet blanc mix with lemon garnish.
Those in the know can also access a secret, discounted ‘off-menu’ cocktail by telling TwoRuba on Twitter how they take their Martini including the hashtag #SecretSip. TwoRuba will then disclose a code via DM that you can relay to the barman to receive the #SecretSip, the recipe for which will be kept under lock and key.
Set Thames-side right by Tower Bridge – the location to which some of the film was captured – the destination cocktail bar TwoRuba is opulently styled in tones of gold with luxurious fabrics, sleek furnishings and glamorous décor – the place for City slickers and suave agents to see and be seen.
