There’s a trace of empire at Battersea bar Powder Keg Diplomacy. The interior feels better suited to the glinting Indian sun than the scowling skies of south London, glorying in an imperial past, albeit with one eyebrow raised. The colonial theme carries through to the cocktail list. The East India Company blends brandy, orange liqueur, pineapple syrup and bitters, while The Drake is an ancient mix of rum, mint, sugar and lime, the precursor of the mojito. They serve a range of potent punches and we’re intrigued by the prospect of their Drop Bear Negroni. The homemade ginger beer is wonderful stuff and the wine list has been composed with imagination and care.
