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.

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. Red Pepper duck and waffle

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.
