Launching at Big Easy Canary Wharf on Thursday 16 June until 13 July, as part of the residency a Rumble in the Tumbler menu has been created that pits six cocktails from Dead Rabbit against six created by Big Easy’s Csabi Toth in a battle of the bartenders. Mixologists from Dead Rabbit and Big Easy will work in tandem in their respective uniforms.

Among the Dead Rabbit cocktails on offer will be the Pub Thug, made with Bulleit rye, Pierre Ferrand 1840 Cognac, Blandy’s 5yr Madeira and cinnamon syrup; and the Oom Pah Pah, which blends Lillet Rosé, Fordaleza Blanco Tequila, cider brandy, Pamplemousse Rose, hopped grapefruit bitters and Boker’s bitters.

Dead Rabbit’s signature Irish Coffee serve, made with Powers Signature, demerara coffee and cream, will also be available at the pop-up.

Named after an infamous 19th century street gang, The Dead Rabbit is run by Belfast barmen Sean Muldoon and Jack McGarry’s, who offer sophisticated cocktails in a traditional Irish tavern in lower Manhattan.

The tap room on the ground floor has a sawdust-covered floor and serves a selection of craft beers, bottled bunches and Irish whisky, while the cocktail bar resides upstairs.

The Dead Rabbit scooped World’s Best Bar and World’s Best Cocktail Menu at the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards in New Orleans last year.

“Collaborating with one of the world’s best cocktail bars is a dream come true for us, and we are delighted to bring something completely unique to the London cocktail scene,” said Big Easy co-founder Paul Corrett.
