Pimm’s Original Cocktail
Is there anything more British than a Pimm’s cocktail? All you need is Pimms, lemonade, cucumber, apple, and fresh mint. Mix all ingredients together in a large glass pitcher and serve chilled.
This cocktail, which became popular in London in the 1920s, is tasty and very easy to make. Simply mix ice, 1 oz Scotch, 1 oz dry vermouth, and 1 oz pineapple juice in a shaker, shake… and enjoy!
This cosmopolitan cocktail has gained popularity in London in the last decade. What is its secret of success? Take note: 5 oz vodka, 1 fl oz watermelon schnapps, 2 pieces watermelon, and sugar. Mix all the ingredients in a shaker and serve with a piece of watermelon.
Originally from Cuba, this drink is also a classic here too. Mash mint and brown sugar together. Then add 2 oz of rum and lime juice. Top the whole mix up with soda water and serve with fresh mint leaves.
Despite its exotic colour, this gin-based drink is also very British. To prepare it you only need to mix 5 oz London dry gin, 30 drops gomme syrup and 10 drops Angostura bitters. Add a dash of Blue Curacao liqueur; done!
