It was pure coincidence (or shall we say providence) when we stumbled upon this glass of blasphemy whilst looking for some classics cocktails. So much so we decided the theme of our Bar Picks this month had to be Christmas Cocktails — the gods decreed it.
A cosy, charming restaurant and bar better known for their traditional British fare, Albion surprised us with an equally impressive cocktail list with staples such as Cosmopolitan, Margarita and Whiskey Sour, as well as traditional mixes with a more contemporary twist — Obamarama, Wimbledon and Lavender Martini.
We were tempted to go for Bloody Mary but we thought it only right — in the spirit of the season — to top the list with the Holy Family themselves. After all there would be no Christmas if it weren’t for them. A heady concoction of Spiced Rum, Amaretto, Cranberry Juice and Orange Juice, a few of these will have you singing Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” with little left to confess by the end of the evening.
Although it was meant to be a Christmas-time cocktail, the Jesus, Mary & Joseph proved so popular that it has earned a sacred place on the menu. And while you are there don’t forget to dig into their Christmas roasts and puddings.
