Stirred not Shaken

On the balcony of Somerset house overlooking the Thames is the Bombay Sapphire Dusk bar. Designed by the renown Tom Dixon.
Here you can sip your perfect martini, I'll have mine stirred not shaken thanks (despite what James Bond prefers).
Do you put vermouth in yours? I like a hint. Many don't like any. I've heard of waving the bottle near the glass without removing the cap.
Winston Churchill made his martini by adding gin then bowing towards France for the vermouth.

Cool place , but only open until 18 October. Get yourself over for a bit of cocktail imbibing.

Don't forget my competition that is running at present to win yourself a pair of tickets to Brussels. You can enter as many times as you like.

Hey were did everyone go? Looks like a grand place for a good, stiff drink!

I hope that's with Gin and not Vodka.

Looks like a place I could sit at for hours reading a book and sipping an adult beverage. Love it!

This is one of the nicest place in London. Soon after they close, they'll open the ice rink, which I like even more.
