Eye Candy Cocktails at Quaglino’s


By Martin Isark

1930′s Quaglinon’s was the place in Mayfair to go if you wanted to be with the Inn-Crowd, and it’s still cutting it in 2018 with its slick and shiny interior and wall-wall beautiful people. 

I was not there to ogle, but simply to taste their new Science of Sustainability Cocktails. A posh venue that’s continually striving to be the best in town, has to have a range of cocktails that impress with their looks and taste. You’ll see pics below they are real ‘Eye Candy’ but what do they taste like?
