This London Cocktail Week, Mr and Mrs Twit invite daring guests to their Upside Down Cocktail Cavern in The Vaults – a horrible haven where the drinks are never served straight. Prepared by gastronomic geniuses Bompas & Parr, and in association with the gloriously gruesome interactive theatrical dining experience, Dinner At The Twits, mischievous mixes will be available to discerning drinkers from 6pm Tuesday to Saturday.
From now, until 29 October, get a foul flavour of Roald Dahl’s The Twits with spirited delights including scotch stirred with sardine and cheese, beer created with a taste of the author himself, squeezes of Hug Tight Glue, and garnishing of nettles and mealworms to name a few.
Mr and Mrs Twits’ Upside Down Cocktail Cavern drinks menu includes:
- Big dead tree & sticky glue Bellini
Served with a small tube of Hug Tight Glue and garnished with a twig from the big dead tree.
- Mrs Twit’s unusual spritz
Hendrick’s Gin, Aperol, nettle vermouth, prosecco and soda – her favourite afternoon eye-opener
- The terrible shrinks
Vodka soda flavoured with berries and oranges brought from foreign climes by the Roly-Poly Bird, garnished with an aromatic helium balloon.
- The upside-down monkey circus
From the slushy machine comes a libation comprising juggled bananas, monkey nuts, golden rum, sugar and lime.
- Dark & stormy muggle-wump
The Muggle-Wumps’ favourite dark spiced rum with hazelnut, chestnut, almond, tonka bean and vanilla.
- Mr Twit’s beard old fashioned
Clingy scraps of sardine, Stilton and cornflakes pulled straight from Mr Twit’s beard, stirred with Scotch.
- Roly-poly berry & chocolate martini
Exotic Marula berry and raspberry are mixed with chocolate in this creamy treat.
- Mr Twit’s dirty negroni
Campari, Sweet Vermouth and wormy Mezcal, lovingly stirred with Mr. Twit’s filthy fingers.
- Mrs Twit’s special milk
Vodka, coffee liqueur, white chocolate and a dubious source of ‘milk’ mark this cocktail out as something special.
- Mr Twit’s monkey cage oil & nettle wine
Take pleasure in lubricating your mouth with Mr Twit’s cage oil – a dark mixture of black raspberry and blackcurrant liqueur served with nettle wine.
- Mr Twit’s odious ale
Made with oak-smoked wheat malt, and dust, dirt and microbes swabbed from Roald Dahl’s own writing chair: the man himself is immortalised in this drinkable delight.
Entry to Mr And Mrs Twits’ Upside Down Cocktail Cavern is free from 6pm. If you can stomach these drinks, and the horrid hosts, why not stay for tea and enjoy the immersive experience of Dinner At The Twits. You can book your tickets here.
