32 Featherstone Street, London, EC1 (Map)
Just around the corner from Old Street Tube station is Pinchito, baby brother to the award winning Pinxto People in Brighton and modelled on the same format ie a fantastic range of authentic Basque-style tapas and great drinks. They love gin at Pinchitos so loads of Gintime gins behind the bar and great new ways to drink them in signature serves like the Gin Choice, a fabulously fruity combo of gin, kiwi fruit, elderflower cordial, lemon grass and bitter lemon. Then there’s the Valentino, a new take on the champagne cocktail with strawberries, gin, elderflower and Cava, and Pink Sangria – strawberries, lychee and elderflower with rose wine and gin. There’s plenty of choice on the food menu too, which majors in fresh, immaculately sourced ingredients served in delicious tapas. Hmm, ideal with gin.
