THAT’S ONE SHELL OF A DRINK
L’Escargot marks its 90th birthday with a startling new cocktail.
“L’Escargot first threw open its doors in 1927,” says managing director George Pell of London’s oldest French restaurant, now celebrating 90 years in business.
“For the occasion, we have created the Snailgroni, a twist on the Negroni Sbagliato. While not strictly a french cocktail, the use of Champagne and gin creates a taste that brings the Anglo-French flavours together beautifully.”
