The week in pictures

27th October, 2017 by Michael J Ritchie

To mark the 30th anniversary of London City Airport, Peter Dorelli, former head bartender of the Savoy Hotel, created a signature cocktail. Named ‘The East End Flyer’, it features Beefeater Gin, peach schnapps, Southern Comfort, pink grapefruit juice, cranberry juice and grenadine. It was inspired by “aviation, London and the 1980s drinks trends”. It will be available for a limited time on a special cocktail menu for the 30th airport’s birthday for £13.95.

A non-alcoholic version called “The Mindful Flyer” will also be available. A spokesperson for London City Airport said: “The airport is a proud 80s child, a product of a decade which saw rapid and considerable change, from politics to popular culture. What better way to celebrate than with an indulgent cocktail reminiscent of the time.”
