BLOOM Gin Terrace


 Summer is well under the way, if not classically British and over before it began, but nonetheless us Londoner's crave every second of the sun and usually find ourselves high-in-the-sky at a rooftop bar or restaurant. It's no secret that I love a rooftop bar; anything outside in the sun I'm there.

And I mean - anyone who loves those aesthetically pleasing Instagram photos is more than likely to be content up on a roof with the sunset in the background. I have reviewed OXO Tower Restaurant before (read the review here, first ever food review right there haha) however I've never ventured to their bar. 

This Summer, OXO Tower has BLOOM Gin in residency. A selection of gin-based cocktails have been added to the menu, created by Sophie Bratt. There are six bespoke cocktails on the pop-up menu this Summer, and as a bit of a gin-fiend I couldn't wait to try a couple.

As expected - the view is incredible. It was a sunny Hump Day (Wednesday) and around 7pm, so in perfect timing to perch up and watch the sun set. There's something to be said for watching the sunset over London. It's one of my favourite things to do; it's lovely. OXO Tower is undoubtedly one of my favourite spots to do so, and I couldn't have been more content.

We opted for two cocktails; the BLOOM Gin Pomelo & Pink Gimlet for me, and my buddy Alex (also my new favourite instagram photographer) went for the BLOOM Gin Day Dreamer. 

The Gin Pomelo & Pink Gimlet is a combination of BLOOM gin, pomelo cordial served with a grapefruit twist. It was a lot stronger than I had anticipated, but nonetheless great. For avid gin lovers; this is probably the one for you.

The Gin Day Dreamer, which actually turned out to be my favourite of two, is a mix of BLOOM gin, lemon juice, chamomile tea syrup topped with soda served with sugar snap peas. This is literally my dream summer drink; I could have perched up all evening sipping away at this. Sadly the fact it's a Wednesday prevented me from doing so, but nonetheless I'll definitely be venturing back to the OXO Tower for a sip on this.

 The BLOOM Gin Terrace is here until Sunday 21st August, you've not got long to head down to get your cocktail. I'd recommend making the most of the sun and perching up for the afternoon.
