Norwich Cocktail Week

It's nearly time to don your tuxedos and get your Great Gatsby on, Norwich Cocktail Week starts October the 4th and runs until the 10th. We've been preparing for the event by concocting our own cocktail with the wonderful Dom from Norwich Cocktail Club. Dom will be serving up our 'Life in a Fine City' drink in the Underbelly of The Rumsey Wells and I can tell you it's ruddy delicious!

Our cocktail consists of as many local ingredients as possible including, Adnams Copper House gin, Norfolk Cordial, a dash of limonchello, Prosecco and garnished with blackberries picked from Horstead (thanks Sue). It's a refreshing drink that reminds me of a late summer picnic, tangy and terribly British. If you like the sound of that then keep an eye on our Facebook page for a competition to win two drinks and two Norwich Cocktail Week wristbands.

Norwich Cocktail Week looks to be an exciting series of events including taster sessions and lots of new drinks for you to try, you can buy a wristband which gets you discount on cocktails, they are £8 or £4 if you buy using Droplet (we love Droplet!). With the wristband there is a sticker card for all the participating venues and if you collect over ten you can enter a prize draw. There is also a Stoli Martini Masterclass on the 8th, spaces are limited so get in quick.

Norwich Cocktail Club will be running four taster sessions at The Rumsey with some local brands including The Norfolk Sloe Company, they are £5 with a wristband and include drinks of course! 
I've certainly got a taste for a good cocktail since making ours, and Dom has some delicious ones to choose from. I recommend having a 'crack baby' shooter while you peruse the menu.

I hope you all enjoy NCW and do let us know your favourite drinks on our Facebook or Instagram.
