Episode 1, Season 2: London calling!

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


Welcome back!

London Cocktail Week kicks off on 1st October, running to 31st October (hurrah!) and to celebrate, we begin our second season by catching up with its founders, Hannah Sharman-Cox and Siobhan Payne to talk why it runs for 31 days, what’s on the agenda and what they’re looking forward to on the LCW calendar.

The Cocktail Lovers podcast, Episode 1, Season 2 – listen here!

We keep the London theme going by reviewing two product ranges created by London bartenders. The first is EasyMixt, the ultimate hack for mixing up simple and delicious cocktails at home, followed by Everleaf, a trio of non-alcoholic drinks created to deliver big-time flavour experiences.

The Savoy Cocktail Book, from one of the oldest venues in the capital comes under the spotlight in our book review and we head to Soma, one of the newest to check out the super cool decor and try out the Indian-inspired drinks.

What we’re mixing:


Created by the late, great London bartender Dick Bradsell

50ml / 2 parts London Dry GIn
25ml / 1 part freshly squeezed lemon juice
12.5ml / 1/2 part sugar syrup
12.5ml / 1/2 part creme de mure liqueur

Shake the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup over ice and strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Top with more crushed ice and form into a mound. Drizzle the creme de mure over to create a streaking effect. Garnish with a blackberry and lemon slice. Serve with a small metal, paper or sustainable straw.
