Wherever this punchy South American brandy comes from, BarChick dig it - and it is killer in cocktails too. If you’ve never heard of it, no sweat, here’s what you need to know and where you need to get it: What is Pisco? Pisco is a South American brandy made from grapes that are fermented and distilled to make an aguardiente. Basically it’s bloody good. Pisco can be made using a variety of grape types and can be distilled using different methods, this means that like all booze, the taste and the aroma can change, as can the viscosity (thickness, babes) of the finished product. What does it taste like? Well, like pisco, really. But if you wanted to know what you’re in for imagine a mix of vodka and tequila. Punchy, but fresh. There are herbal notes in there as well as hints of tropical fruits, and if you really get into it you’ll realise how the taste of pisco keeps evolving in your palate. Don’t believe us? Go try it! Pisco Sour Week Saturday 4th February sees the start of Pisco Sour Week in London. It’s basically an excuse to party South American style and sample some kick-ass pisco sours. The big hitting Andean restaurants like Chotto Matte, Senor Ceviche, Coya and Pachamama are all going to be doing more than just whacking a pisco based drink on the menu. For more info on exclusive #LPSW check out the dedicated Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/LDNPiscoSourWeek/ BUT, pisco is for life, not just for Pisco Sour Week. SO, where can you drink the good stuff all year round? Where to get your pisco fix: Ceviche – This was London's first pisco bar, so you know these guys mean business. To prove it there’s nothing but this delicious grape brandy in the cocktails. Now that’s dedication. Try: ‘Lilko’i’ is made with ginger infused pisco, passion fruit puree, Chase elderflower liqueur guanábana juice. Coya – Drink pisco in style at super sexy Coya. Expect a Peruvian fusion fantasy in here with bright walls, long marble tables and grand gold details . Try: ‘Ojo de Tigre’ is a pineapple infused pisco, with coconut liquor, fresh coriander, chili, lime juice & mango syrup. Pachamama – Pachamama is a bar and kitchen in Marylebone that delivers a Peruvian-inspired menu of small plates, so naturally pisco is what they suggest to wash it all down with! Try: ‘Chicama Barsol’ Quebranta Pisco infused with Earl Grey Tea, St. Germain, lime, lavender bitters Chotto Matte – This slick sushi fusion hangout is loco about pisco! Try: ‘Holy Water’. La Diablada Acholado Pisco, Kappa Chilean Pisco, citric acid, simple syrup and kaffir lime spritz Andina – Martin Morales (aka. Peruvian Pisco legend) didn’t stop at Ceviche. Shoreditch’s got the sexy sister, Andina, and the cocktail menu’s just as epic.

If you’re gonna go and spectate, you’re going to need to know some facts: The Jist: There are two teams, each with 11 players. To score points they need to get the ball into the other team's end zone for a touchdown, or by kicking it through the opposite team’s goalposts for a field goal. When is it?

Superbowl.trophy Who’s the entertainment? Lady Gaga Why is the entertainment a big deal? It is the most-watched musical event of the year. More than 115 million viewers in the U.S. watched last year’s show, and it’s broadcast WORLDWIDE. Food and Drink estimated figures: It's the second highest day of food consumption in the US after Thanksgiving, with the average fan consuming 1200 calories and 50 grams of fat on snacks alone. Engineers at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken came up with these outrageous estimates: - 325 million gallons of beer will be consumed during the big game (that’s 500 Olympic-sized swimming pools). - 100 million pounds of chicken wings will be eaten. - 9 million pizzas will be taken down. Superbowl.food Hangovers:  Apparently 7 million people won’t turn up for work the next day – so if you’re getting involved, maybe save yourself some agro and book that bad boy off. Lingo to pretend you’re a pro: Pick a team, learn a few names and cross your fingers they do well. When you describe what your team are doing get in the habit of saying "we", it shows passion. Then highlight your passion by saying afterwards "Ugh. I say ‘we’ like I’m out there with them!” When you come back from a toilet break ALWAYS ask what you missed! It shows you care. Act aloof at the half time show, it’s cutting into some important game time. If you someone calls you up on something you’ve said and you’re not sure of the answer, pretend your phone is ringing, pick it up and say "mate, I know, what a game!” and walk off talking. Try using the words “roster”, “play book” and “run formation” when you can.

Although some places serve it at night, it’s not always the "done thing" for dinner. That said, London is full of awesome cocktail and dim sum hangouts that we've covered for you night owls. What is Dim Sum? • It’s a small bite sized Cantonese food, usually served in small steamer baskets. • Dim sum’s literal meaning is ‘touch the heart’ as it was originally served as a snack, and therefore only meant to touch the heart. Cute. • In Cantonese going for dim sum is known as going to "drink tea" (yum cha), as tea is typically served with dim sum. Obvs we prefer cocktails, but never knock a decent tea. Dim.Sum.at.Royal.China What to order? There is often a lot to choose from so here is a list of must have classics: Har Gow - A shrimp dumpling, which is said to be the one that the skill of a dim sum chef is judged on. Traditionally it should have at least seven but preferably ten or more pleats imprinted on its wrapper. Shui Mai - Most likely to have ground pork and chopped shrimp, but you can get all sorts of varieties, order a scallop shui mai for sure. Cheung Fun - This translates as a rice noodle roll, go for prawn or pork but they come with sorts of options. The key is the soy-like sauce they pour over them, this sauce is key, if in doubt, ask for extras. Roast Pork Puff - BBQ pork in pastry, ‘nuff said. They are awesome, get lots. Not to be confused with a Cha Sui Bao – Those big pillow-like, white fluffy BBQ-pork-filled-buns, a more filling baked bun kinda dim sum. Xiaolongbao - Soup dumpling / Shanghai dumpling - possibly one of the wonders of the world, a dumpling with soup inside. Genius. Just be sure to let them cool down, major date fail if you don't. Sesame Paper Wrapped Prawn - Does what it says on the tin, good old fashioned fried fun. Lo Mai Gai - Steamed sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf, usually with some egg, pork or chicken in there too. Yam Croquette - These are whispy wonders that are made of mysterious meaty mush. Try one, you might like it, it didn’t stop BarChick’s date even though he thought they smelt like c*m. Soup - A soup hit in the form of a hot and sour or a wonton is always a good way to kick start proceedings. Those of you feeling wild should get the chicken feet in the mix too, a talking point and a classic. Dim.sum.platter.and.cocktails Where? Dim sum can go either way in London; there’s the good, the bad and the terrible, but we say go for the awesome. Royal China This place has a cult like following. You can't book at lunch but just grab a ticket and get in line, it’s worth the wait which shouldn't be long. It’s traditional, fast and has a great atmosphere. Take the whole family and order lots, you'll look like a pro. By night it gets a little fancy, so we say head here for lunch and stick to what they do best. Although they have restaurants all over town, you won't catch BarChick anywhere but Baker Street or Bayswater.

Barchick Says

Date Updated: 02/03/2016

The first Hawksmoor to open its doors and give Londoners the mega meat sweats, this one will always hold a special place in our heart belly. Wandering down the stairs into Hawksmoor Spitalfields Bar, you might feel like you’re in the library of an Oxford College. Dark wood lines the walls and floors, there are tiles from old tube stations, the tables are high recycled chemistry lab tops and there are three sexy booths to slide into.

The bartenders are all cocktail legends here, providing flawless service and constantly nailing it with all sorts of original drinks on offer. You can’t come to Hawksmoor and not try the legendary Shaky Pete’s Ginger Brew (it’ll blow any hangover out of the water) or a Full-Fat Old Fashioned any time of the day.  They’ve got a new menu going on right now – think Miami Vice but in a Sazerac and popcorn infused rum. It’s epic!

Hawksmoor serve the best steaks in town, and to do it right you should definitely book a table in the upstairs restaurant to finish the night off with a fat Porterhouse and a side of lobster – that’s how BarChick rolls. Wanna keep the party down in the bar? The bar menu’s just as banging; ox cheek nuggets, pulled pork buns and triple cooked chips to keep the wolf from the door. Perfect for a meat loving date, ideal for a client, and you can take BarChick there anytime!
