Drink This: Monkey 47 Cocktails at German GymnasiumBy Alicia Grimshaw
The nights are drawing in, the weather is on the turn, and we’re all digging out our cable knits. For those longing for the summer months, German Gymnasium has teamed up with Monkey 47 Gin for A Schwarzwald Summer.
In true German style, the outdoor terrace is adorned with gorgeous pink and lilac flowers, there’s also a delicious cocktail menu featuring six gin-based concoctions and authentic Black Forest bites. Southern Germany has officially arrived in the heart of London.
The drinks list features classic cocktails with a Monkey 47 twist. Think Black Forest Spritz with Monkey 47 Gin, lemon verbena, raspberry three ways, lemon and soda; Mountain Martini Monkey featuring 47 Gin, lingonberries, citrus two ways and apple; German Negroni – a medley of Monkey 47 Gin, German sweet vermouth and bitters.
There hearty bar snacks galore including German Gymnaisum’s famed, and much-loved currywurst – curry infused pork sausage, curried tomato sauce, triple cooked chips and house sauce – truly divine on a cold weekday evening. For some molten, cheesy bites, the deep-fried camembert ticks all the boxes, and you can’t go wrong with the burger – prime beef patty gloriously topped with dry-cured crispy bacon, cheddar, romaine lettuce, crispy onions and house sauce all stuffed inside a fluffy bun.
Travel to Deutschland this summer without even having to step foot on a plane and book a table at German Gymnasium.
