Months back, I had the great pleasure to take part in Penhaligon’s Cocktail workshop that celebrates their fragrance Juniper Sling, which is inspired by the London Dry Gin. We learnt from the expert and bartender Kamil from Tippling Club, how to create a unique concoction including raspberry, gin & a special undisclosed recipe that leaves a lingering after taste that is similar to Juniper Sling, so you can taste the very scent that you smell! I learnt that a good fragrance is much like a good cocktail, it should be layered yet balanced. The cocktail session was truly an interactive, engaging and immersive experience of the Penhaligon’s world.
And here we have the Juniper Sling cocktail!
Next Kamil taught us how to make Old Fashioned, consisting of syrup, bitters, brandy or whiskey and a twist of citrus rind.It is amazing how much the cocktail changes just with a twist of lemon skin! The drink instantly becomes layered and more appealing.
And everyone who attended the session, it was great fun! I suppose alcohol connects us all, haha.
Thanks to Penhaligons & Touch PR for hosting this lovely cocktail workshop!
