Gr8at: My Favourite Posts

I really have covered a lot of different topics in the year I have been running this blog. The nature of my site means I can cover all kinds of topics in various formats. Everything from sporting gaffes and Sheldon Cooper’s funniest lines to cracker jokes, the best cocktails and reviews on films like Argo, Django Unchained and American Hustle.

Even with 607 posts I’ve always taken care in what I put up and never added anything I didn’t like. At the top of the main page I have archived all the pieces under all the different topics I have put up. They are all up to date.

Below are eight of my favourite posts (in no order) that weren’t mentioned in the previous post. If there is one article or photograph or one aspect of the site you particularly like, please feel free to tell me as I always value your feedback.

Gr8at – Cocktails

Here are eight of the coolest cocktails that I’ve tried in London when out with my girlfriend. Do you have a favourite? Which ones do you go for when out at a bar?

Jamble, Simmons

Jamble – Simmons Bar A sweet mix of gin, chambord, raspberry jam and cranberry juice with a bowl of fresh raspberries on the side.

White Russian, Be at One. The cocktail is made up of vodka, coffee liqueur and cream. Stronger than it looks too.

Centrapolitain at Central & Co. Raspberries just work so well in cocktails.

Blackberry and Elderberry Pimms at The New Inn. A slight twist on the regular Pimms.

Disco Biscuit at Be at One.

Chocolate martini at Hotel Xenia. Really strong, but the vodka mixes well with the creme de cacao.

FBI at Be at One. It has Vodka, Baileys Irish Cream, Kahlua and vanilla ice cream. That should tell you just how good it is.
