It’s London Cocktail Week


London Cocktail Week starts today with a fabulous selection of events and over 200 bars offering special cocktails. So here are some of our favourite mixes if you’re in the mood to celebrate…

Here’s Mrs Beeton’s classic Champagne Cup recipe from How to Cook. A nice light start to an evening.




This Richard’s Cosmo recipe is taken from Kate Harrison’s The Ultimate 5:2 Diet Recipe Book. So, not only is it delicious, it’s low in calories!

Pisco Sour is the Peruvian cocktail: refreshing and a delicious blend of sweet and sour. This recipe is by Martin Morales in his Ceviche: Peruvian Kitchen cookbook.



Finally, Nina Parker brings a little bit of St Tropez sun with this L’Apéritif de Pampelonne recipe from her Nina St Tropez cookbook. The granita provides a refreshing base to this summery cocktail.
