Not just a great song by the Clash… London’s Burning!

London's BurningNeed something to heat up your Saturday night? We had purchased jalapenos last week and were thinking of a few ways we could use these in a drink. A quick web search brought up a few interesting possibilities including the London’s Burning, a mix of muddled lime, avocado and jalapenos.

The cocktail was invented by Anthony Go, a bartender at Mahi Mah’s Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Saloon in Virginia Beach, WV. If you’re in that neighborhood, drop by and have the real thing.


  • 2 1/2 oz of London Dry Gin
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1/4 avocado
  • juice of 1/2 a lime


Muddle the juice of half a lime, slices from half a jalapeno and 1/4 avocado pulp to the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add ice cubes and gin, shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with the other half of the jalapeno.

Cheers, and here’s the Clash!
