SquareMeal Review of Dirty Little Secret

Popular with Dalston tattooed types and Haggerston’s hirsute hipsters, this pop-art party from the people behind the Black Pig with White Pearls (next door) is a sexy squeeze. If gin is your fetish, dive in! Ideally taken with tonic, assorted mother’s ruin infusions are two for £10 before 9pm, when the shindig really gets going: expect flavours ranging from fig, apricot, orange and lemongrass to pear, star anise and clove or Earl Grey and lemon thyme. Tanqueray informs aviation and gin julep, while Broker’s gin is the base for gimlets and the house crusta. Juniper deniers may prefer an East London negroni (Barbadian rum, Campari and Oloroso sherry), a frozen daiquiri, tart margaritas, Spanish sidecar (Romate brandy, citrusy/herbal Licor 43 and lemon) or a Menorcan take on a French 75 using cava and Xoriguer gin from Mahon. And that’s about it, really.
