Apres lounge duke street rum and raisin candyshop cocktailSituated just off Oxford Street tucked down the side of Selfridges, Après London is one of those hidden gems of a venue, where once discovered there is no turning back. When it comes to cocktails, these guys know exactly what is what, from inspirational mixologist concocted signature cocktails to all your classic favourites. They operate an optomistically confident ‘whatever, whenever’ policy and their staff appear to have the encyclopedic cocktail knowledge to back this up.

For the month of March the mixologists at Après are going all retro with a ‘CandyShop’ theme and five aptly named Candy Cocktails to celebrate …

Pear Drop
Wyborowa pear, zubrowka, passion fruit, pear puree, elderflower, lemon & apple juices served long over crushed ice

Parma Violet
Tovaritch vodka, crème de violette, crème de mure & gin stirred and served up

Rum & Raisin
Myers rum, butterscotch, frangelico, mango syrup & cream served up dusted with cinnamon

Rhubarb and Custard
Tovaritch vodka, passion fruit, rhubarb cordial & soya milk

Lemon & Licorice
Lemon vodka lemon juice & sugar. Down in one, served with a stick of licorice

With these brand new and too-tasty-to-be-true cocktails sweetening up the existing menu; CandyShop promises to be the perfect spring time offering to help you shake off those winter blues, renew your drinking palette and allow you to truly live like kids in a sweet shop.

The cocktails, all hand-crafted by head mixologist Jez Jewitt, take into account Après natural liking for quirky and unpredictable cocktails and are all served with an array of sweet treats.

“These five new concoctions really bring out the excitement and creativity that Après is known for,” said Jewitt. “Not only do they taste delicious and are high-quality cocktails, they also stand for what the brand is known for – being fun, colourful and of course one-of-a-kind.”

Spread over four different zones Après offers something to everyone; with a cocktail bar, lounge, garden and a hidden little sanctuary named ‘the snug.’ Given it’s close proximity to Oxford Street and convenient location down the side of Selfridges, this truly has to be the ultimate cocktail bar for winding down after a hectic day of retail therapy or catching up with friends and indulging those epicurean senses in some of the finest cocktails the capital has to offer.
