The Cocktail Lovers Magazine Issue 44



New season, new drinks discoveries – brand new podcast season

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


We’re back and while we’ve been away, we’re thrilled to say that The Cocktail Lovers podcast picked up Best Broadcast, Podcast or Online Video Series at the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards in New Orleans – whoop-la!

The Cocktail Lovers podcast, Episode 1, Season 4 – listen here!

So what are we coming back with? Only the good stuff… Our drinks reviews take in Beesou, a honey-based aperitif from Britain and Ki No Bi, a big-hitting gin from Japan. Our library pick also puts Japan in the spotlight with Julia Momose’s award-winning book The Way of The Cocktail.

Closer to home, we head over to Little Mercies in London’s Crouch End for good vibes, top-notch drinks and an array of simply delicious bar bites. Then it’s over to Paris where we catch up with Alex Francis from Little Red Door to talk about what’s in season, the importance of local and why their fabulous menu embraces farm to glass drinking.

What we’re mixing:

Millionaires Martini

40ml gin
40ml dry vermouth
20ml Champagne or sparkling wine

Stir the first two ingredients over ice in a mixing glass. Pour into chilled Coupe glasses and top with Champagne or sparkling wine.
