London’s top 10 aperitivo hour cocktails1st February, 2013 by Lucy Shaw
8: LBC at Pitt Cue Co
We heard through the grapevine that the LBC is a staff favourite at pulled pork specialists Pitt Cue Co in Covent Garden. A heady mix of lime, Bourbon and Campari, it makes for a bitter but refreshing pre-dinner drink. Also on the menu at Pitt Cue Co is signature apéritif, the Pickleback and Skin, a two shot drink of Bourbon followed by pickle brine, served with a cup of pork scratchings. The Pickleback is thought to have originated in Brooklyn, with the brine supposedly neutralising the burn of the alcohol.
