The British climate might not be too tropical right now, but these 8 great summer serves sure are
1. Best Beloved – Reverend JW Simpson
Everything about this says summer! With Barsol pisco, shaken with Aperol, fresh lime, orange and passion fruit and vanilla syrup
2. Summer Negroni – Maze Restaurant
Mixologist Giorgio Tosato has given this classic serve gets a tropical makeover. With coconut-infused Ophir Gin, coffee bean infused Cocchi Americano, Amaro, Montenegro, Campari and Tonka bitter.
3. Oddlytini – Worship Street Whistling Shop
There’s a great little pop up garden at basement gin palace Worship Street. There you’ll find some real wacky gin cocktails served in birdcages and wheelbarrows. We’re loving the Oddlytini, with Hendrick’s gin, a buzz button (get ready for an electric shock in your mouth) and Italicus. It’s a drink you sure won’t forget in a while…
4. Champagne Pina Colada – Coupette
THE drink everyone is talking about this summer – this retro drink gets classy twist at new French style bar Coupette, which has a very Champagne heavy cocktail list. J’adore.
5. Jungle Boogie – Walrus Room
Loving that crazy Rambutan cup garnish, which is filled with Amaro di Angostura. in the glass is Blackwell rum, pineapple juice, lime juice.
6. Pining For You – Dirty Bones
Just can’t get enough pineapple? It’s all about Pining For You, with Bulleit bourbon, housemate pineapple shrub, cinnamon and vanilla maple syrup, soda and Angostura bitters.
7. Red Pepper – Duck & Waffle
A pepped-up summer spritz – with blanched red pepper skin, Russian Standard Platinum vodka, Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth, leftover red pepper stalk and seed cordial, red pepper vinegar and Prosecco.
8. Pineapple Express – High Water London
We’re all over this. There’s a dab of truffle oil on the leaf so you experience the rich smell, but without the intense truffle-y taste. With Pisco salter pineapple sherbet, yellow Chartreuse liqueur, lemon juice.
