The Weekly Cocktail Recipe – Bobby Fitzpatrick’s ‘Alison Mahoney’

A new addition to West Hampstead’s drinking scene, Bobby Fitzpatrick’s eponymous bar is a firm nod to the ‘70s – one of the most culturally vivacious decades of 20th Century history.

With a strong focus on pizza and cocktails, the themed bar is unapologetically retro and has a strong focus on rum. Inspired by ‘Bobby’s Rum Diaries’ of his travels in the Caribbean, the cocktail menu draws from chapters of the owner’s personal history. The ‘Alison Mahoney’, for instance, is named after his first girlfriend and senior year prom date and is heavily inspired by the classic daiquiri, featuring spiced Havana Club spiced rum, lime juice and ginger syrup.


50ml Havana Club 3 spiced rum, infused with lime, cinnamon and cloves (recipe below)

25ml lime juice

15ml ginger syrup
