  • Repost from @mix.mann using @RepostRegramApp - Happy #Friyay & my 1st #FridayFashion post! Some of you may know I have a thing for fashion having done an Art A-level many moons ago I do still have a creative side & actually buy half of my wife’s wardrobe! I know sounds a bit weird & gets me in trouble with my mates when their wives mention yet another item I bought her!
.
When I heard about a fashion and cocktail collab we were both intrigued. The Fashionista’s out there may be aware that the V&A museum are running ‘Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams’ exhibition in London. It showcases some of his most iconic dresses some made for other icons like Princess Margaret, Margot Fonteyn & Jennifer Lawrence!
.
In celebration of this the @may_fair_bar within @themayfairhotel (official hotel for London Fashion Week) developed “The Dior Collection” a bespoke range of Dior-inspired cocktails paying homage to 3 of Dior’s most celebrated dresses: ‘Écarlate', ‘Pérou' & ‘Soirée de décember’
.
You’ll see I’ve created a collage linking the drinks to the dresses. Dress Photos © Laziz Hamani

Red: Écarlate afternoon dress, AW 1955 Haute Couture collection, Y line. Victoria and Albert Museum, London. The bar created a lovely Vodka based refresher with hibiscus, guava, blood orange & #Cocchi vermouth
.
Gold: Pérou short evening dress, AW 1954 Haute Couture collection, H line. V&A Museum, London. Gift of Cecil Beaton
.
Black: Soirée de décembre evening dress, AW 1954 Haute Couture collection, H line. V&A Museum, London. Gift of Dame Margot Fonteyn. The cocktail includes vodka, aperol, kalamansi & active charcoal it was our favourite but if taking any medication then best to avoid activated charcoal, I’ll reshake & explain in a future post!
.
I recreated the gorgeous golden Pérou cocktail:
. 
25ml #Hennessy Fine de Cognac 
15ml Honey & Sage syrup
5ml Lemon Juice
Top with #Moet Champagne
Garnish: Mint leavf sprayed gold + gold sprinkles, I dropped this into the drink create a gold shimmer
.
The V&A’s has extended #thediorcollection to September as it’s had over 100k visitors! Hopefully #Mayfairbar will extend the availability of this lovely #cocktail flight too!

Sippy Cup 2
.
.
.
1/2 oz ginger ale syrup @34oztonic 
1 oz fresh grapefruit juice
1 oz Cocchi Vermouth di Torino @giuliococchi 
1.5 oz Averna @averna_italia 
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 oz Suntory all free beer like soda
1 pinch of citrus acid
Garnish: grapefruit wedge and rosemary flower
.
.
.
The edible rosemary flower is from my garden, I was surprised to see them blossom when I got home.  The unusual ingredient here is the Suntory all free soda which I picked up from the local Japanese grocery.  It is quite good, for those who don't drink beer or want a day of beer, and I learned a new word: "Nodogoshi." Nodogoshi is a unique Japanese expression for the pleasant sensation of beverages/food passing through the throat when swallowing.

Happy Tuesday!
