The Mark Fast cocktail at the May Fair Hotel

The aim of the Mark Fast cocktail was to try to communicate the designer's intricate, loose knitwear - a tough challenge you might think, but one that the May Fair's mixologists met with a witty solution: a spiral of orange peel that was unravelled into the glass to look like the open texture of a Mark Fast signature knit. Other themes that Mark wanted to be included were: liberation, minty fresh, green, trident gum and menthol. So how did it turn out?

The Recipe:
Sailor Jerry's rum
Ten cane rum
Lime wedges
Gomme syrup
Mint leaves
Shake ingredients with ice in cocktail shaker, then strain into tall glass
Garnish with mint leaves and Orange 'knit'
