A Satan’s Whisker is a classic cocktail from the speakeasy era of the roaring twenties. This lethal mixture is gin based and layered with orange liquor and dry vermouth. It hasn’t been seen on menus or chalk boards for a while, but a new cocktail bar going by the same name has made the infamous Satan’s Whisker its house cocktail. Located at the less trodden end of Cambridge Heath Road, this bar is a welcome spot for the fresher autumnal nights that are around the corner. We think it should be a mandatory stop on any local bar crawl, perhaps even the last one of the night.
The drinks are reasonably priced and the changing daily menu of cocktails on the specials board is more than enough to warm your insides before it’s time to brave the cold again.
