International Sherry Week at Aqua Nueva
This year, Regent Street’s premier Spanish restaurant is celebrating International Sherry Week with a new sherry inspired cocktail and dessert. For one week only, try Aqua Nueva's new cocktail with Tanqueray gin, Punt e Mes and Tio Pepe sherry, highly aromatic with ripe yellow apple and orange flavours, garnished with cherry and Angoustura bitters. Then for main from the a la carte menu try the Beef Shortrib with padron peppers, potato gratin and chimichurri served with a sherry jus. And to finish if you're looking for something sweeter, enjoy the new sherry dessert with fragrant sherry poached plums, kumquats, hibiscus sorbet and indulgent sherry cream. The special cocktail and dessert are only available throughout International Sherry Week until 12th November.

You might remember back in August hearing TWUMPS was opening at Rich Mix, well after a successful pop-up the anti-Trump bar is back for three weeks. The Trump Tower inspired bar has opened its golden doors in Dalston to raise money for charity – with 50p from each drink going to one either Marie Stopes International, TELL MAMA, Kalidescope Trust or White Helmets. As a replica of Trump’s penthouse in NYC, this place is literally dripping in gold, and you can even post risky tweets on a live Trump Twitter board. When it comes to the drinks you can expect to be sipping on the Nuclear Negroni, Mexican Wall Margarita and the Moscow, and of course some damn fine Mexican grub from Cantina Carnitas. With DJs, drag shows and quiz nights, there’s plenty to keep you entertained too. twumpsbar.co.uk
