Cocktails at the American Bar at the Savoy
Monday 21st November 2011
In the evening we took Ai-san out for cocktails at the American Bar at the Savoy, wherein we met award winning bartender Manabu Otake.

Tony's Cafe, where I had lunch.
My second cocktail, a Savoy Pink Gin. There was a lot of gin in this, but it was surprisingly drinkable.
Tasting the Savoy's own mix of bitters.
Ai-san, Chie, me and Manabu Otake, who was the winner of this year's Diageo World Class Bartender of the Year, and happened to be visiting the bar at the Savoy at the same time as us.
Manabu-san was itching to get behind the bar, giving us this nice opportunity for a picture along with two of the staff at the American Bar.
