Hanky Panky, Bend over Shirley or Pop my Cherry?

During lockdown like most people I’ve been daydreaming about a time when we can all get out and about and visit our favourite restaurants and bars to enjoy a fabulous meal and a cocktail (or maybe two!).

Although I’m not a huge drinker, and only drink very occasionally, I do enjoy a cocktail, a glass of wine or champagne along with great conversation and lots of laughs with my Gentleman friends.

Recently a lovely gentleman compared me to a Vesper Martini, as “I am elegant, sophisticated and addictive, with a hint of danger!”

Whilst writing this blog, I wondered how the name cocktail came about……so I did a little research. The word cocktail comes from the practice of horse dealers in the 1700’s. To cock a horse’s tail and make it look spirited for a show, the dealer would give it a ginger and spice suppository. This became known as adding “cock-tail”.

If you would like to spend an hour or two sampling cocktails in one of my favourite cocktail bars then please get in touch…….the ginger suppository is optional!!
