Christmas is lovely: everything is green, gold and red. This year, it’s also pink.

Pink? I hear you shriek. Yes, pink …

The Drunken Monkey in East London – renowned as much for its wondrous array of Dim Sum, as it is for its Kung Fu setting -is helping urn a few things on its head this Christmas. On their long and popular cocktail list, the festive ones down at the Shoreditch locale have produced a special ‘Pink Pigeon Rum Christmas Cocktail’ especially for all you hardcore revellers.

What’s in it? ’50ml Pink Pigeon, 25ml Freshly squeeze orange juice, 15ml Fratello hazelnut, Dash of old fashion bitters’ .. sounds nice? That’s not all. With every cocktail, the customer receives an accompanied Pink Pigeon jelly, too.

Head to this authentic Oriental-style bar to enjoy dim sum and a lot of festive fizz under all its dimly-lit lanterns and intricate wall paintings. Just make sure you go hungry for a bit of Rum.
