SUCH GOOD COCKTAILS, so much love, it was hard to leave. International Playboy bartender, Jamie Bancroft has taught the team well. “She stirred it in ice which is gorgeous,” my mate Sam whispers “I haven’t seen that since my grandparents made drinks. Look how beautiful the lemon twist is inside.” First up I’d had a splendid Mezcal Martini (bartender Tristan’s suggestion) while Hayley mixed my mate’s classic. I observed her free pour. Suggestions kept coming: have a tried this gin? Martinis are a Moose specialty. By now my lovelies, you might have gathered that I like sex. So we moved on: real classics, semi-classics and then there was the Pornstar Martini ($18) - passionfruit sweet but not sickly. I don’t need to be lured to return. The martini map $10 Thursdays Design Your Own Drink has my name all over it.
