3rd September, 2014 by Lucy Shaw

What’s in a name? That which we call a Piña Colada by any other name would taste as sweet.

As the role of the mixologist rises to prominence and the bartending profession is taken increasingly seriously, bartenders are putting more thought into their cocktail names in a bid to out pun one another.

From the Slap & Pickle at Berners Tavern in Fitzrovia to the Qunice of the Stone Age at Callooh Callay in Shoreditch, some of the capital’s bartenders are guilty of a pun too many – the “I’m On The Dill You Can Cumin Side Me” at Heaven’s Dog in San Francisco springs to mind.

Read on for our round-up of the top 10 drinks that have tickled us pink. If we’ve left any corkers out then let us know in the comment box below.

    You have missed my creation, which I was rather proud of. A Whisky, Montmorency cherry juice and soda cocktail.

    The cherry Juice is from Michigan. I christened it ‘Michigan Impossible’.

    How could you have missed it!
