10 quirky London Cocktail Week drinks

London Cocktail Week celebrates its eighth anniversary this week, which makes us feel old, as the inaugural cocktail fest back in 2010 feels like yesterday…

Running from 2-8 October, LCW will bring together the best bars and bartenders in the capital for a celebration of all things shaken and stirred.

Wrist bands have been scrapped this year in favour of digital passes that can be downloaded onto your phone.

A £10 pass gives you unlimited access to £6 cocktails in over 250 venues in the capital throughout the week, in addition to discounts at bars, restaurants and ticketed events.

Among the bars taking part this year are Nine Lives, Super Lyan, the Rumpus Room, Bar Termini, Untitled, Original Sin, Black Rock, The Blind Pig and Dickie’s Bar.

The Cocktail Village at Old Spitalfields Market is the beating heart of London Cocktail Week featuring a maze of pop-up bars and street food stalls.

With so many sips to choose from we’ve rounded up 10 of the quirkiest cocktails on pour this week, from an asparagus-laced Negroni to a nitro popcorn Espresso Martini.
