The week in pictures


Poshest Cocktail of the Week came courtesy of  Andrea Mellis, from the Blue Bar at The Berkley Hotel, London, who came up trumps in the Art of Italicus Challenge at the Gong Bar, Shangri-La Hotel, on Monday night.

Up against the likes ofAlex Walker, from the Artisian Bar at Langham Hotel and the Groucho Club’s Miriam Nini, Mellis’ winning wine-based serve — The stolen Bike — mixed citrusy, bergamot-laced liqueur Italicus with Chardonnay, gentian bitters, coconut whay cordial and topped with soda. Naturally, dahling.

Just like a beauty pageant, Mellis is now the UK representative for the global finals, which are set to run in Milan in Novermber. The winner will be invited to participate in a workshop at the American Bar at the Savoy, London.
