Bombay Sapphire has partnered up with the Rib Room Bar and Restaurant at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with ‘Ginbilee’ Masterclasses. I mean what a spectacular name. If you’re a big fan of gin (and right now we need to shun the Gordon’s appreciation in the previous post) then this is right up your street (said in Cheryl Cole’s voice).

In the run up to the Royal Jubilee weekend, these classes will showcase five unique Bombay Sapphire G&T infusions which have been concocted by five spectacular inventors and creatives, including David Carter from the spectacular storytelling nights at 40 winks and a hot chick called Anna who is changing the world by making headphones and the likes out of chewing gun.

Not only do you get to experience the sweet infusions of the showcased drinks, delicious canapes and a history of all things Gin, you also get to put your own bar-tending hat on and create a personal concoction. I got a bit carried away with rosemary, thyme and cardamon. Hmmmm I’m not convinced but I look pretty happy in the picture. The glass is almost as big as my head.

You get a cracking goodie bag too with gin, tonic, stirrers and squeezers. Check. Me. Out. Bar-tending on a Monday afternoon.

If you’re free on Saturday 12th May, Saturday 19th May and Saturday 26th May then call 020 7858 7250 or e-mail reservations@theribroom.co.uk. It’s well worth a visit, date or just a wee slurp.
