Food & Drink: Get Your Freak On

The drink of the moment (is it a ‘drink? we would call it more of a ‘feast’) is definitely the Freakshake. With a traditional milkshake as its heart, these adorned explosions of flavour and colour are popping up on menus everywhere from Dalston to Dulwich.

A balancing act of epic proportions, glasses are piled high with cream, doughnuts, biscuits, brownies, cherries, even bacon and burgers have made there way on to these epic concoctions. Its seems that the freakier the better!

Lettice gives you the low down on the best places to enjoy these freaky drinks and we recreate our own baby version, perfect to add a little freakishness to your next canapé party!
