The wolves are howling, the spirits are out and the vampires are hunting for their year supply of blood. The kids our out in their (cutest) scary costumes haunting their neighbours, asking if they would prefer a trick or if they would rather forfeit for a treat. The older kids are out in the finest, skimpiest costumes, drinking the night away and living it up.
Halloween being the most loved tradition before Christmas, everyone loves to get involved – even restaurants and bars. Binny and I popped into the bar at Mango Tree in Belgravia for some spooktacular cocktails.
The bar was dressed in the finest carved pumpkins, cobwebs with spiders and stuff animal galore! A lot of effort had gone into it, which I thought was a lovely touch.
There are a special few Halloween cocktails on the menu too, to get into the true spirit of things. They were even curated to resemble the colour of blood – very creative.
We had the ‘Dark Night’ first, which was made up of Cognac, Vodka, hahlúa, flamed orange syrupand Coke. It was quite a strong cocktail, but it had lovely orange notes with a throat warming sensation from the Cognac.
For our second cocktail, we had the Dancing Zombie, which was white rum, gold rum, orange juice, pineapple juice, angostura bitter and grenadine. A much lighter, less alcoholic cocktail with more fruity flavours.
The cocktails were presented so beautifully and was a lovely way to celebrate Halloween in a more calmer, chilled out fashion. Mango Tree has a lovely bar which makes it the perfect location to have a drink before dinner. Binny & I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at Mango Tree trying out their Halloween cocktails.
If you’re in the area, definitely pop in for a drink. Halloween or not! 😉
Until next time…
