Welcome to the party, pals. West End cocktail and whisky bar Cobbler have just launched their Die Hard-themed Autumn cocktail menu.
Cast your mind back to 1988. Bruce Willis, legendary action movie star and questionable R&B musician, was at the top of his game, starring in the original Die Hard (you know, the one with Nakatomi Plaza and the late Hans Gruber).
Now, Cobbler — known for their themed menus — are paying homage to this cult classic with a series of themed cocktails.
New additions to the menu include the John McClane (Talisker 10 Smoky Whisky, delord fine armagnac, peppermint tea, rosemary syrup, lavender bitters, lemon twist), Hans Gruber (Monkey Shoulder Whisky, crème de Noyaux (Almond), cinnamon and caraway, red gum honey, orange bitters) and Yippee Ki-yay Motherf—-r (Appleton VX Rum, lemon juice, pineapple, rose and jasmine orgeat, orange blossom water), just to name a few.
The change of season sees the inclusion and infusion of fresh seasonal ingredients as well as super popular Kombucha, a fermented, lightly effervescent sweetened black or green tea drink. Also making its way onto the menu are corpse revivers, a classic style of drink from the 1900s which are designed to ‘revive’ your body (corpse!) and provide a ‘hair of the dog’ cure. Add to this a 400+ strong whisky list, and good times are all but guaranteed this Autumn at Cobbler.
You’ll find Cobbler at 7 Browning Street, West End; it’s open seven days a week.
