BarChick hit The Playboy Club one Tuesday afternoon and found a whole lot more than just shaking, making and drinking!
Eight bartenders from seven different cities were given 5 minutes to create a cocktail with at least two of The Poshmakers Spirits and taking inspiration from a book, any book.
Some of the highlights were cocktails in wellingtons, a Mad Hatter’s tea party, oyster and chilli vodka infusions, one full English breakfast and a Bloody Mary sandwich. In the next life we want to be as creative as a bartender…
They were all amazing but these were some of our favourites!
