London’s CTC debuts ‘playful’ cocktail menu

17th May, 2017 by Annie Hayes

London bar The Cocktail Trading Company (CTC) is “taking inventiveness to a new level” with the launch of a story-telling cocktail menu that presents “unsung classics” in bespoke drinking vessels.

The Black Purl is said to be “hot, boozy and thoroughly satisfying”

Created by Andy Mil, Olly Brading and Elliot Ball, the menu is designed to “conjure certain emotions” through the choice of flavours and off-the-wall presentation.

Combining Glenmorangie Lasanta and pomegranate and sesame pruno, the Scofflaw cocktail is said to be an ode to the heritage of London’s East End, and represents “an encounter with the Kray twins on a rainy day outside a run-down pub”.

In contrast the “bright and spicy” Toreader #4, comprising Tequila, lime sherbet and spiced corn horchata, is served in a stunning blooming tulip designed to “uplift the drinker’s spirit”.

The team launched their first venture in January 2015, and has since been recognised for their imaginative and unusual drinks offering.
