Hilary Alexander invents fashionable cocktail at The Dorchester

Two of my favourite things: Hilary Alexander and cocktails. Hilary is a fashion legend (when I grow up I want to be like her) and sipping a cocktail at The Dorchester is a legendary experience…

Pretty exciting then that 5 star London hotel The Dorchester has teamed up Hilary and Fashion for the Brave to create a fabulous new cocktail, the Cavalry Charge, made of gin, wild strawberry liqueur, ginger beer, fresh lime and blue curacao (you would love it if you could hear how I pronounce the latter).

Red, white and blue, the cocktail has been designed to “give a patriotic toast and a nod of thanks to Her Majesty’s armed forces, especially The Household Cavalry”. £2 from each one sold is going to the Household Cavalry Operational Casualties Fund (HCOCF), and the cocktail is part of the build-up to the black tie Fashion for the Brave fundraising event and fashion show, taking place at The Dorchester on Thursday 20 September 2012.
