Silky Rose Design

London, GB


Hi, My name is Sarah Wilkinson - the artist behind Silky Rose Design.

I am a self-taught illustrator and designer living in Greater London and working from my home studio.

I enjoy working both traditionally and digitally. I love the creative freedom that comes from drawing digitally, allowing me to experiment and grow.​

In 2013 me and my husband started our family. It was during my second maternity leave that my creative urges really took hold and have helped me turn what was once a hobby, into a career and propelled me into becoming what I have always been in my heart– a designer and illustrator!

Recipes By Silky Rose Design

Cable Car Cocktail by Silky Rose Design

London, GB


I first had this cocktail at the Nobhill Tavern bar in MGM Grand in Las Vegas back in 2011. It is still the best cocktail I have had to date!

After returning home I began the quest to recreate it - I just couldn’t get it quite right. When I had babies the cocktail shaker got packed away, but since we are living in lockdown, it has made another appearance and my quest was renewed!

I don’t think I will ever match the Nobhill one, as I think their fresh sweet and sour recipe holds some magic secret ingredients, but I have gotten pretty close with my attempts at home and am sharing this simple recipe with you.
Adding fresh egg white to the sweet and sour mix will give you the frothy top!

Pink Lemonade by Silky Rose Design

London, GB


This recipe reminds me of a sweltering summers day. Made with raspberries I personally love a sour lemonade, but you can sweeten by adding some apple juice to taste. And for the grown ups, it makes a fantastic mixer for spirits.
