This month sees the return of Taste of London, a celebration of food and drink at the capital’s Regent’s Park. The team behind Mr Fogg’s bars will be setting up camp, bringing their inventive drinks and a bit of 19th century chic to the festival.

Hakuna Ma-Tanq-a, Good Fellow! (Tanqueray No. TEN gin, fresh lemon, banana puree, cherry liqueur, pineapple juice and soda water)

Mr Fogg’s Safari Camp will recreate the nostalgia of Mr Phileas Fogg’s African adventures with British colonial-style tents and world-class drinks. Inside the tent will be an array of antiques, vintage maps, globes and taxidermy collected on Fogg’s voyage Around The World in 80 Days. Guests will be transported to the wilds of Africa with flora, fauna and botanicals. Outside the exotic camp, there will be alfresco drinking opportunities with parasols for those who wanted to sink a cocktail or two under the sun.

Among the cocktails on offer will be A’Frican Good Time (Don Julio Blanco tequila, fresh lime, pear purée and homemade lemon verbena tea syrup); Rum-bling Around the Serengeti (Zacapa 23, coffee cream, camel milk and vanilla syrup); Rye Brettania (Bulleit Bourbon Rye whiskey, ginger liqueur, fresh lemon, chilli honey, sprayed with Islay whiskey); and Hakuna Ma-Tanq-a, Good Fellow! (Tanqueray No. TEN gin, fresh lemon, banana purée, cherry liqueur, pineapple juice and soda water).

For those who like their tipples a bit simpler, there will also be a separate Gin & Tonic bar for the traditionalists. Fogg’s barmen will be giving lessons in how to mix the perfect G&Ts, with the choice of Tanqueray No. TEN or London Dry gins, several flavoured tonics and botanicals, including juniper, coriander, grapefruit, chamomile and lime.

  • Mr Fogg’s Safari Camp will be at the Taste of London from 15 – 19 June 2016. Tickets start from £16/£28. Regent’s Park, NW1 4NR. Nearest station: Regent’s Park. For tickets, visit the Taste Of London website or visit Mr Fogg’s website.
