Children’s classics turned into cocktails

Jason Atherton’s The Blind Pig cocktail bar in Soho has launched a drinks menu inspired by children’s classics like Winnie-the-Pooh, Peter Pan and The BFG.

Hidden above the Michelin-starred Social Eating House, the bar’s ‘Long and Short Great British Tails’ menu was devised by manager Dan Berger.

Playing heavily on nostalgia for a simpler, more innocent time in our lives, each cocktail comes with an illustration by Masha Karpushina that captures the essence of the book it’s inspired by. The menu itself is designed to be read like a bedtime story book.

“Everyone has a favourite story from their childhood, so the idea for this list was to capture these shared memories and bring them to life with a playful yet grown-up twist,” said Jamie Jones, global bars executive for Jason Atherton.

The menu launches on 23 January. Click through for a sneaky peak at each of the 10 cocktails on the list and their recipes.
