The Perfect First Date Cocktail: Let’s get Clikd.

When you hear the words dating app and alcohol, the word cock-tail seems pretty apt right? And you are definitely going to want to whet your whistle with this bad boy.

The ‘Let’s get Clikd’ has been created and inspired by the new dating app clikd- which has been dubbed the Instagram of the Dating World and for good reason. Its clever photo-based sharing system and personality test means that you match with mates/dates based on your likes and shared interests. Gone are the days where you are matched purely based on your cleverly edited and styled looks (Hello Tinder, looking at you here boo) and replaced by in depth, but fun means of attraction on deeper levels. Clikd is a brand new London created app that encourages both romance and friendship in a creative way by encompassing photo sharing and dating all in one.

The app has teamed up with The Trading House in creating a cocktail that would be perfect for First Dates, or sharing with mates *sharing is optional.

The ‘Let’s get Clikd’ is an elegant mixture of two different types of vodka (to calm the nerves), Coconut rum (so at least you are getting some nuts during the night), a white chocolate liquor which is made using the finest cacao beans giving it its light and creamy texture (no words needed there) and finished with Frangelico- which is a nutty hazelnut liqueur which marries the flavours of coffee, vanilla and cocoa together in perfect harmony  (just like clikd does with you and your potentials) and makes the entire drink taste like a liquid Ferrero Rocher, all topped off with dark chocolate sprinkles- because you should ALWAYS get chocolates on a first date somewhere along the line.

This gorgeous cocktail has been created by the incredibly talented Stefan at The Trading House which is always my go-to choice for First Dates, Lunches, Brunches or late night dinners- (to be honest I am actually there than anywhere else in London), with their outstanding decor, and extensive wine, gin and beer list there is always something for everyone.

And it is situated in the middle of Bank where there are always hot guys in suits at every turn and every tap on the app. Win/win.

To make your own ‘Let’s Get Clikd’ you will need:
1 Koko Kanu
1 Frangelico
2 Cariel Vanilla vodka
2 Kettle one Vodka
3 Creme Cacao Blanc

Served in a chilled Martini Glass, shaken over cubed ice
Garnished with dark chocolate sprinkles

Clikd is available to download now on Apple and Android for free. Visit to find out more.
