orig­i­nal sin, Lon­don n16

Olive - - DRINK -

A long bar with stools hugs one side of the room at this dimly lit Stoke New­ing­ton neigh­bour­hood out­fit, while, on the other, leather booths are lit up by pineap­ple-shaped wall lights and tealights on ta­bles.

The menu puts a wild twist on clas­sic drinks. The house old fash­ioned, made with bour­bon, plum wine, pep­per­corn tinc­ture and bit­ters, is per­fect for whisky lovers – smooth and sip­pable, with warm depth. For some­thing lighter, go for the White Amer­i­cano, where Cin­zano Bianco ver­mouth is matched with flo­ral peach, Suze and tonic.

Ne­groni lovers can choose be­tween the punchy Ne­groni Nero, made with tequila, sherry ver­mouth, rhubarb aper­i­tivo and cof­fee, or one cre­ated with gin, Cam­pari, Cin­zano 1757 Rosso ver­mouth and cold-brew cof­fee, which adds a slightly smoky flavour. We also loved the sweet yet vi­brant notes of pome­gran­ate mo­lasses and ap­ple brandy in the Handy Dandy bour­bon cock­tail. orig­i­nalsin.bar
