The Blind Pig: Childhood Revisited
For those who like something sweet, order the Hunny Pot, which pays homage to A.A Milne’s Whinnie The Pooh. Whimsically garnished with childhood favourite, a Percy Pig, this rum-based drink is a deliciously playful beverage choice.
35ml butter washed Havana 7 rum
25ml honey water
20ml fresh lemon
10ml Somerset cider brandy
2 dash orange bitters
Pinch of salt
Shake all the ingredients with ice and serve in a glass (or hunny pot) over cubed ice. To finish, garnish the cocktail with a Percy Pig.
Lost & Found
London’s favourite lost bear, Paddington, has found a home at The Blind Pig. Lost & Found brings toast and marmalade to the table.
20ml toast and marmalade
40ml Barsol pisco
10ml triple sec To make the toast and marmalade flavour, heat and dissolve ½ jar of sugar and combine with 1 jar of marmalade and ½ jar of water. Soak toast in the mixture then remove. Combine with the other ingredients and shake with ice. Serve straight up.
Half a Pint O’Buttah
For those who have always dreamed of heading to the Three Broomsticks, the Half a Pint O’Buttah is The Blind Pig’s take on a Harry Potter classic.
40ml Monkey Shoulder whisky
15ml Kamm & Sons
10ml thyme liqueur
25ml butterscotch syrup
15ml soya milk
2 dashes Abbott’s Bitters
30ml Samuel Adams lager
Combine all the ingredients (except the beer) and shake with ice. Strain the drink over ice and top with beer before stirring.
With a focus on creativity, innovation and a flair for flavour, it is no surprise that The Blind Pig is one of Soho’s most popular bars. With Jamie Jones, The Social Company’s Group bar executive, and The Blind Pig’s bar manager Dan Berger firmly behind the wheel, this complex yet whimsical menu offers a healthy dash of nostalgia with all their cocktails.
