Cocktails and Chocolates for Easter
Who says children should have all the fun? This weekend Monkey Shoulder are inviting grown-ups to tap into their inner child and hunt for Easter eggs in a specially created indoor garden in central London.
It’s well worth foraging around; if you find one of the eggs, you can exchange it for a bespoke cocktail, paired with a scrummy handmade choc.
If you don’t, you can either buy a cocktail or check out the recipes below and make them at home.
The Monkey Shoulder Chocolate Trail can be found at 63 Broadwick Street, W1F 9QL from Good Friday until Easter Monday. Open 12noon-7pm, admission free.
