Scary Good Cocktails in London: Halloween at The Langham
October 6, 2011By: Mary Winston Nicklin

Artesian's Vieux Carre at the Langham LondonRemember the “Tarantula and Scorpion Cocktail" we told you about? You know- the one infused with oven-baked tarantula and scorpion to add woodsy notes to the Courvoisier punch? Well it doesn't stop there. Alex Kratena, the award-winning mixologist at the Langham London's Artesian bar, keeps outdoing himself. His latest concoction for Halloween? Kratena took the classic Vieux Carré Cocktail, originally created in 1938 by bartender Walter Bergeron at NOLA's legendary Monteleone Hotel, and added something positively ghoulish: a side of toasted Colombian giant ants and Mopani worms. Artesian’s creepy-crawly Vieux Carré is made with the finest cognac and rye whiskey aged with infused vermouth, bitters and herbal liqueur, served over a crystal clear ice ball. Available at the Langham London through the entire month of October 2011 for £16.50.
