Cocktail Concoctions: Bam-Bou

4 May 2015

This month, Chief Stewardess Jasmin Rutter of S/Y Marie is bringing a little Japanese flavorall the way from the multi-floor restaurant Bam-Bou in the City Centre ofLondon, which hosts the most extensive range of Japanese Whisky in the UK.

Rutter recently did a guest shift at Bam-Bou’s gorgeoustop-floor bar, RED, where she was inspired to create this simple, tasty andeasy to replicate cocktail for Dockwalk,which she named after the restaurant itself.

“Japanese Whisky is fast becoming apopular choice for guests, and this is a way to really highlight its flavorsand give the guests something special,” she says.
