Quintessential London Cocktails and Where to Drink Them
15 May 2017
- Make It Yourself: This cocktail is best concocted in a pitcher for sharing with mates as you take in a polo match. Combine 1 ½ cups Pimm’s No. 1, orange and lemon slices, and a few sprigs of mint; allow to chill and marinate for 10 minutes. Then, add an equal part ginger ale, toss in some cucumber for garnish, and serve over ice.
- Mix Your Own: Combine 2 ounces gin, 1 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice, and a 1 tablespoon of simple syrup. Mix in a shaker, then pour over ice and top off with club soda.
- DIY This Cocktail: This super-easy recipe starts by pouring champagne into a flute-shaped glass; slowly pour Guinness over the top, using the back of a spoon to diffuse the stout and maintain the separation between the two ingredients.
