Great looks, great taste

There’s more to London Fashion Week than fancy frocks and frippery. Like cocktails given a designer-style twist. Thankfully, a number of stylish London bars have got in on the act and created perfectly pretty drinks to reflect the diaphanous mood of the season…

Take Rockwell Bar at The Trafalgar Hotel for instance. Inspired by the spring/summer 2011 collections from Vauxhall Fashion Scout designers Body Amr, Jasper Garvida and Georgina Hardinge, its limited-edition cocktails are as gorgeous to look at as they are to drink and they’re sooo much easier to get into than a dress designed for a skinny model…

Designer cocktails at The Trafalgar

Try A Sheer Statement (Absolut Vodka muddled with grapes, lemon juice and sugar gomme, garnished with a single basil leaf); Delicately Spirited (Sauvignon Blanc mixed with Vodka and Cointreau, a dash of lime, cranberry and elderflower, topped with lemonade and garnished with dried cranberries and mint leaf.) Or go for Bright Lights (Gin and Kwai Feh Lychee liqueur shaken with a dash of lime and orange juice, garnished with the zest of a lemon.)

At the launch earlier this week we tried all three from the collection. Each was fabulous, but the one we really recommend is A Sheer Statement. Served straight up it looked every inch the fashionista, matched with a deliciously dry taste of understated elegance.

Available from 18 February to 31 March.
