•Time for a master cocktail class🍸🥃 🍹•
. @goatchelsea is located in the heart of Chelsea, offering an Italian restaurant, a DJ bar called and a hidden speakeasy behind secret entrance.
The masterclass was called “Drinking with Hemingway” and I had the pleasure to learn more about his life, travels and his love for booze. Every cocktail was inspired from him. Bellini, Daiquiri, Martini and Whiskey Sour was a must. Absolutely delicious cocktails and brilliant bartender Steve with nearly 25 years of experience and truly passionate about cocktails. .
. My favourite cocktail was the Hemingway Daiquiri. After spending some time in Cuban. Around ‘20 at El Floridita in Havana, it was created this variation in honor of his daiquiri-loving without any sugar because his diabete problems. As far as the drink goes, you will enjoy this smooth daiquiri because it brings the sweetness using maraschino along with fresh squeezed grapefruit into the classic rum-lime mix. It's quite a delight and a nice drink to break routine. .
. Thanks to @hype_app for organising the experience! .
Happy Anniversary to me ( 6 bloody years ) with this incredible city. Almost 30’s next year 😨 👉🏻 10 things that make me feel like I’ve become British ::
1. I’ve started thinking 100 years isn’t a very long time, and that 100 miles is kind of far.
2. I get irritated when people don’t stand on the right on escalators, even outside the UK.
3. I once caught myself spelling color with a ‘u’.
4. I think it’s normal to eat fish for breakfast. Like really fishy fish.
5. I believe drinking 5 cups of tea a day is pretty standard. I think I’ve even done it once.
6. I get confused and uncomfortable when strangers talk to me, even when I’m back in Italy where it’s socially acceptable (and even polite).
7. I think it’s normal that hotels list electric kettles as amenities. I even look for it when booking. I haven’t brought my own tea bags with me…yet.
8. I get the whole royal thing now. If the Queen had a fan club, I would join it.
9. I once ate a hamburger with a knife and fork.
10. I like mash and pie 👉🏻 10 things that make me think I will never actually feel British ::
1. I weigh 10 stone and the metric system still baffles me.
2. I’m sad I will probably never see a tumble dryer again (my poor towels).
3. I can’t believe gout is still a common affliction here. My doctor even thought I had it once (turns out it was just a stubbed toe).
4. I still can’t fake an English accent (any of them) to save my life.
5. It continues to strike me as strange that collective nouns are pluralized.
6. I would take waffles over fish for breakfast any day. There. I said it.
7. I still feel guilty when I drink alcohol at lunch on a Tuesday, even when it’s only 1 glass.
8. I get giddy and feel like tap dancing whenever I catch a glimpse of Big Ben.
9. I photograph every red phone box I see. Every time. All of them.
10. I’m still in awe that I live in such an amazing city. I’ve come to the conclusion that I will never feel fully British, but neither will I ever feel completely Italian again. That’s okay, though, because one of the best things about London is that there are people here from all over the world, and I couldn’t be happier.
