The upstanding citizens of our new release, "TEA TOTAL" starring the head of the family portrait, @prof_elemental. Hmm. Or is it @pyebeatbox? Or indeed @iamoffbeatuk? They all seem to look rather noble and Godfather-like.
No we certainly AREN'T going to quit gloating about how delighted we are with our SPIFFING new song release and video with @prof_elemental - "TEA TOTAL"! ☕
Such raucous revelry indeed. Who could have imagined such fun? Well there's no need to imagine. If you haven't already, go check it out and most importantly of all, let us know what you think (and share obviously)!! Link in the comments 🙃
☕In case you missed it yesterday, we have officially released our first collaboration - "TEA TOTAL"! With no less than THIS fine specimen of a genteel-man. @prof_elemental!!! AND his ape! We are absolutely stoked. What a blast it's been too. ☕
@sharleenaray actually sampled this one whilst slurping oysters in London's Soho for her dad's 60th birthday this week, but totally forgot to take a photo. Doh!!! She can confirm it is interesting on the palate for the first few sips. And then proceeds to be absolutely revolting. The Gibson; a drink that fell out of favor in the era of margarita mixes and cotton candy flavored vodkas. This is a drink that comes from a different time and place. It's the drink Cary Grant swills on the train when he's run from the cops in North By Northwest. It's a favorite of Roger Sterling in Mad Men. It's the drink that Bette Davis slams in a single gulp before declaring, the now-famous line, "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night". It's a virtual time-machine of a cocktail. Recipe: 2 oz Gin 5 oz Dry Vermouth Garnish 2 Cocktail Onions
The fabulous cast of The @swinghoppers' upcoming video "TEA TOTAL" coming out TOMORROW to celebrate our collab release with the one and only @prof_elemental.

Massive thanks once more to our hosting steampunk dream of a venue, @the-yellow-book-brighton.😍 What naughty malarky d'ya reckon I get up to this time then?

Massive thanks once more to our hosting steampunk dream of a venue, @the-yellow-book-brighton.😍 I wonder who can hazard a guess as to the storyline and get nearest to the tale's events?! Lay your bets now or forever hold your peace!

This week we’re sampling the saucily named ‘Hanky Panky’! Created by famed bartender Ada Coleman for actor Sir Charles Hawtrey who, upon drinking it, exclaimed "By Jove! That is the real hanky-panky!" To try this completely captivating concoction yourself, take a cocktail shaker with ice and pour: - 1/2 (1 1/2oz.) Italian vermouth - 1/2 (1 1/2oz) dry gin - 2 dashes Fernet Branca
