A chain of RESTAURANTS said it was offering free Boris Johnson cocktails to customers with any main meal, in a search of the Prime Minister over the party stories going on in Downing Street.
Bill’s, who owns restaurants in England and Wales, shared a clip mocking Johnson and his ministers about the scandal and explained the new drink concept.
In a parody of Last Christmas, Johnson and Michael Gove went up to appear to sing, “But the next day / we partied / This year / to save my career / I had to find something special.”
Bill’s said he would offer the “free Boris cocktail” to all customers who order a main meal and book, or show the social media post upon arrival.
The cocktail is a blend of Wyborowa vodka, margarita blend, and cranberry juice topped with cotton candy, Bill said.
An illustrated version of the cocktail shows a clown-like Johnson on top with cotton candy hair – but it’s unclear what the actual version looks like.
According to the channel, the drink will be available until December 30.

It comes after their chief executive Eddie Wilson signed a joint letter to the UK government criticizing its approach to the travel industry during the pandemic.
“As executives of UK airlines, we are deeply concerned about the government’s haphazard and disproportionate approach to travel restrictions following the emergence of the omicron variant,” the letter said.
“While we fully recognize the need to take measures to contain the initial impact of the omicron variant, travel has been distinguished with the introduction of disproportionate restrictions.”
