The Cocktail Lovers Magazine Issue 47



ByThe Cocktail Lovers


Are you doing ‘Dry’ this January? If so, we’ve got your back. In our last episode in this season we’re putting the growing non-alcoholic category very much in focus and trust us, we were very impressed.

We start by tasting two new products, High Point Ruby Aperitif made in Cornwall and Savyll, a range of ready-to-drink cocktails from London.

Lyaness is our bar of choice. Why? Because we love the way they put as much creativity, care and attention into their ‘boozeless’ concoctions as they do their boozy counterparts. And book-wise, it’s all about Kingsley Amis’s cocktail essays, ‘Everyday Drinking’.

Last but by no means, we head to Club Soda Tasting Room & Shop to talk to Laura Willoughby MBE who’s on a mission to make the world a better place for people who are drinking less or not at all.

The Cocktail Lovers podcast, Episode 10, Season 4 – listen here!

What we’re mixing:

LLB (Lemon, Lime & Bitters)

150ml lemonade/soda or lemon & lime soda
15ml freshly-squeezed lime juice
4-5 dashes Angostura aromatic bitters
Lime to garnish (optional)

Pour lemonade and lime into an ice-filled Collins glass. Add 4-5 dashes of bitters and garnish with lime (optional). Serve with metal straw and stir bitters into the drink.
