The Doll has always had a taste for couture and cocktails.
On her travels around the world in search of crazy, quirky, fabulous vintage that meets her impeccable standards, she has happened upon (and stumbled out of) countless speakeasies, absinthe parlours, tiki lounges and dive bars - and befriended many a mixologist along the way.
When living in the material world the Doll likes to invite her customers to shop the civilised way, with a cocktail in hand. But now that she has entered the virtual, you’ll have to shake it yourself.
Thankfully we have our international spiritual advisors on hand for guidance...

BROKEN DOWN DOLL SIGNATURE PUNCH*
50 ml gin
Lemon sherbert (6 lemon zests with 2 bar spoons castor sugar muddled together)
25 ml pomegranate juice
20 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
10 ml maraschino liqueur
5 ml Pernod Absinthe
Prosecco to top
Either shake all ingredients (apart from the Prosecco) into a champagne flute then finish with the bubbly. Or multiply all ingredients by 10, add to a punch bowl filled with ice stir, then and add Prosecco at the last minute, before serving.
Ben was on hand back in the earliest days of the Doll to host our first ever Absinthe Parlour.
If you were ever lucky enough to visit our Chamberlayne Road residence you may or may not remember anything…
Like a trusted spiritual advisor, Ben understood that there is nothing the Doll likes better to mix with her gin than absinthe. Hence, the Broken Down Doll Signature Punch was born.
*The Doll warns against greedily drinking an entire punch bowl. Even if there are two people involved.
