Drink: The Salcha

By Time Out editors

Wine and cheese are a classic combo, but cocktails and cheese? Marble Bar’s Jay Tuncer Tokmak is putting a twist on the Bloody Mary that’s more logical than it might seem. “As a Bloody Mary is considered a hangover cure, I thought it would be a good idea to have hangover cure and breakfast in one,” he says. “After all, tomato and cheese are common to breakfast culture.” A relative newcomer to the Hilton’s historic underground bar, Jay knew he’d fit in on his first day when a customer came up to thank him personally for making a perfect classic cocktail. “My favourite kind of customer is the one who knows what they want to drink rather than ‘make me something good!’”
