Catwalk Cocktails At TwoRuba At Hilton London Tower Bridge

Catwalk Cocktails At TwoRuba At Hilton London Tower Bridge

September 18, 2015

LONDON – This season’s must-have collection of seriously in-vogue cocktails will soon arrive at TwoRuba Bar in Tower Bridge, just in time for London Fashion Week.

Showcasing the finest creations on the ‘catwalk’ bar, grab your fellow fashionistas and take a front row seat to sample this season’s most fabulous flavours of designer concoctions.

The Punk Love (£12) was inspired by one of our most outspoken fashion designers, Dame Vivienne Westwood, and is an audaciously rebellious cocktail of tequila with pineapple juice, spiked with lime and agave then served with fresh kumquat.

Brilliantly British, the Brr-Berry (£12) cocktail includes a medley of British frozen berries, muddled with crisp, clear gin and served in a frosted jam jar. A dash of lime adds sharpness while a crowning of crushed ice completes this SS16 drink.

The Ruba Rouge (£12) will match all the red-soled Louboutins darting between shows with this ruby red Bacardi cocktail featuring fruity flavours of lychee and grapefruit, topped with fresh blackberries and ice.

Elegantly Luxurious, the J’adore (£15) embodies the timeless glamour of Parisian couture houses in the form of a classic Champagne cocktail, a touch of brandy with a garnish of chic gold flakes.

Beauty is pain, but TwoRuba’s cocktails are an absolute pleasure.

Seductive Sidekicks: Bond Girl Cocktails at TwoRuba at Hilton London Tower Bridge

Seductive Sidekicks: Bond Girl Cocktails at TwoRuba at Hilton London Tower Bridge

“I never have more than one drink before dinner. But I do like that one to be large and very strong and very cold and very well-made” James Bond, Casino Royale (1953)

October 05, 2015

LONDON – To celebrate the new Bond film, Spectre, released this October Hilton London Tower Bridge’s cocktail bar, TwoRuba, has put together a special menu of signature cocktails inspired by some of the secret agent’s most compelling and iconic female companions – the Bond Girls – alongside social media secret code giveaways available from Monday 26th October until Sunday 8th November.

Bearing all the characteristics of the Bond beauties, these extremely tempting tipples are seductively sweet, uniquely different and pack a mean punch, including:

The Jill Masterson (£11)
Inspired by the character portrayed by Shirley Eaton who got painted in gold and died as a result, now immortalised in a tall gold glass in the shape of a woman’s torso filled with a sharp mix of Chambord, vodka, raspberry, mint, cranberry and lime.

The Kissy Suzuki (£13)
An exotic sip of lychee, lemon and apricot liqueur and topped up with Bollinger Champagne, this concoction is inspired by one of the first Asian Bond girls.

The Vesper Lynd (£11)
A recurring Bond character, Vesper Lynd has been portrayed by both Eva Green and Ursula Andress. The Vesper cocktail is a bona fide Bond creation, twisting his drink of choice, the Martini, in favour of a vodka, gin and Lillet blanc mix with lemon garnish.

Those in the know can also access a secret, discounted ‘off-menu’ cocktail by telling TwoRuba on Twitter how they take their Martini including the hashtag #SecretSip. TwoRuba will then disclose a code via DM that you can relay to the barman to receive the #SecretSip, the recipe for which will be kept under lock and key.

Set Thames-side right by Tower Bridge – the location to which some of the film was captured – the destination cocktail bar TwoRuba is opulently styled in tones of gold with luxurious fabrics, sleek furnishings and glamorous décor – the place for City slickers and suave agents to see and be seen.

Full Of Christmas Cheers – The Snowball Snug At TwoRuba At Hilton London Tower Bridge

Full Of Christmas Cheers – The Snowball Snug At TwoRuba At Hilton London Tower Bridge

October 12, 2015

LONDON – When the weather outside is frightful, warm up from within and get into the seasonal spirit at TwoRuba’s Snowball Snug – the perfect place for that ever-necessary knees-up this festive season.

Hilton London Tower Bridge’s cocktail bar has taken its “Snug” and decked it out with a dance floor – illuminated with colour-changing panels – and a twinkling mirror ball for shimmying and shaking the night away. From £25 per person, groups of up to 25 can get seriously seasonal and relish the retro at TwoRuba’s Snowball Snug with a round of Christmas cocktails and a selection of festive rolls.

Sip from a new limited edition menu inspired by the Snug’s namesake cocktail – the Snowball. Promoted from the forgotten to the fashionable, this retro cocktail is guaranteed to deliver a serious hit of the festive spirit in each sip. Forget mundane mulled wine, sloe gin sips and tiresome toddies, there’s only one cocktail worth knocking back this Noël. A favourite of Nigella, the classic Advocaat cocktail has been given a festive facelift; from The Classic (with lemonade and lime), and The Lemon featuring vanilla vodka with lemon curd to The Cinnamon Snowball, with a generous dash of freshly-made cinnamon syrup and The Raspberry with a fruity fresh purée – there’s a Snowball to suit every taste.

The menu takes all your favourite flavours and puts them in a roll – the ‘Christmas Goose’ features sausage with duck liver pâté, the ‘Ho Ho Ho’ has traditional fare with smoked turkey, crackling, cranberry chutney and horseradish and the ‘Yule Log’ filled with halloumi, mushroom pâté and crispy onions.

Sure to get even the most serious and sour-faced Scrooge in the mingling mood, TwoRuba’s Snowball Snug is set to be the most ridiculously retro spot in central London for office parties, end of year drinks sessions and Yuletide get-togethers. To make a booking, please call email Clair on info@tworuba.com or T: 020 3002 4407.

There’s snow better place to get in the seasonal spirit this Christmas than TwoRuba.
