What do you get if you put an award winning mixologist in a London’s best bar for 2011 and garnish it with an A-list celeb line up? Juju. Since opening in 2009 the bar situated on King’s Road has been a regular haunt for the likes of Johnny Vaughan, Pixie Lott and JLS, so this month Chelsea Monthly decided to see what all the fuss was about.
Bar manager Christian Ozzati, is widely acclaimed as London’s best bartender and that’s why his self-invented cocktail the ‘Tongue Tingler’ has been awarded Chelsea Monthly’s Cocktail of the Month. Its taste is far superior to its name, promise.
Now whether you like tequila or not the ‘Tongue Tingler’ manages to balance a fine array of flavours leave you wanted a fifth. The honey comb and chilli tequila tingles the senses whilst the fresh watermelon and Midori add complement the flavours to give you a taste of summer, and I’m sure it counts as one of your five-a-day right?
Ozzati has since sold this gem to Jose Cuervo Tequila.

1 large Wedge of Watermelon
