Man, I piled on the pounds when my parents broke up. Not because I was constantly crying with tubs of Ice cream in front of ‘Parent Trap.’ No, every event that happened I ended up having two meals for everything; christmas, birthdays… and this Easter is no exception. (As Catholics, we do milk the whole ‘Jesus rising from the dead’ as an excuse to get plastered)
So Dad surprised me with a meal out to Aqua, London. One that has been on my bucket list for a while. This place is just off Oxford Street and has a killer bar terrace and if it wasn’t cold, cloudy and the bar was open (so if we were not in England) I can imagine it would be pretty cool…
So as you can see it was pretty incredible food, Jesus would be proud.
Before we went to Aqua, Dad’s BAE and I caught up in Central&Co for a pre cocktail she also brought me multicoloured bunny biscuits. damn she knows me well.
But before that all kicked off (I have worked you back till this climactic moment…) I had a BLOODY MARY…
Garnishes: 5 I like a good rim, bit of lemon was nice but something green would have been nice.
Taste: 7 good quality wasn’t anything that stood out.
Kick: 9 Great kick that left a tiny fire in my mouth.
Presentation 8 It looks neat and the rim makes it more exciting. It could be a bit more fun but it’s not offensive.
Overall 7 i would say it is above average, the quality is there and is presentable so can’t complain. However I have seen more creative ones on my crawl.
And that was Easter Part I…
