London Cocktail Week is in full swing so to celebrate I thought that I would show you one of my favourite cocktail destinations in the city – Aqua at The Shard.  

Aqua is a great place to go if you are visiting the city as it has some of the best panoramic views to be enjoyed in London – in clear sight are iconic landmarks such as London Bridge.  I never tire of a good view so I love going to Aqua when I am visiting London.

Aqua has a wonderful wine and cocktail menu.  I opted for Breakfast at Tiffany’s, made with Belvedere Vodka, lemon, rose liqueur and raspberry syrup.  For my non-alcoholic friend, fruity mocktails were made especially for her by the mixologist.

Aqua at The Shard offers drinks, dinner, afternoon tea, lunch and brunch, so it’s a great place to visit whatever the time or occasion!
