We Have Inside Gist From The Johnnie Walker and Gordon’s Bar Crawl.

October 16, 2019

What did you get up to between the hours of 6 and 10 pm on October 15th? 
Hustling in Lagos traffic? Having a quiet night in? Topping your dinner with water perhaps?

On Tuesday, I had the chance to choose from an array of the finest cocktails Lagos has to offer in the Johnnie Walker and Gordon’s bar crawl. This crawl is just a start to the beginning of the Lagos cocktail week happening today and tomorrow (October 16th-17th)

Here’s what went down!

Cocktails.

When two of the biggest names in alcohol whip up a series of cocktails, what kind of drinks do you expect? Sweet, spicy, sour, citrus or herbal? How about all of the above? Johnnie Walker and Gordon’s came strapped with some of the yummiest cocktails on the planet, no cap. I may or may not get have been whispering Johnnie Walker and Passion Fruit in my sleep. 

Here were some of my favourites of the night:

These Gordon’s infused cocktails ,OMG!

Johnny Walker and Chapman.

And my absolute fave:

Johnnie Walker and Passion Fruit.

There was premium grub too.

If you’d like to know and taste the full list of drinks available, keep reading until the end.

People


Remember when we told you to keep your eyes glued to the Eat.Drink.Lagos social media pages? Well, they did a little poll for budding mixologists asking what they’d put in their drinks and these were some of the most creative answers.


Here were the lucky winners that got invited to the crawl.

The Places.

We got into our party buses and hit 5 spots for the crawl – 

Noir with lighting from the gods.

Peep Lala Alakija schooling us on the unmissable cocktails to try for the night.

The Backyard, where TMXO tried his hands on making the Johnny X Apple cocktail.

Atmosphere Rooftop where Bella Adeleke killed it with her cocktail mix.

Voila!

Signature Lounge where Cocktail bae – Berg showed us why he was the mixologist with the mostest.

And then Brass and Copper where we ended the night.


Now you’re probably kicking yourself wondering how you missed the chance to taste all of these bomb cocktails, and I feel for you, I really do. Which is why I’m going to let you in on a little secret – you can get all of these cocktails and a lot more I didn’t list, peep the next heading.

4. After the party there’s the after-party.

In this case, the main party.

The cocktail crawl is just a teaser of what’s to come at the Lagos City Cocktail Week happening today and tomorrow (October 16th- 17th) at the Balmoral Hall in Federal Palace Hotel. We’re giving our free passes on our social media pages, so go and follow @zikokomag everywhere, right now!
