No alcohol, no problem…



Summer Berry Sling

Non-alcoholic cocktail recipes can be just as inventive as those with spirits in. Sometimes more so. We love these fresh and fruity concoctions created by Ryan Chetiyawardana, winner UK Best Barman 2009 for seasonal berries – just one sip and you know summer is near…

Summer Berry Sling

4-6 strawberries
10ml ginger syrup
10ml elderflower cordial
10ml fresh lemon juice
60ml cranberry juice
60ml pressed apple juice

Muddle the strawberries in a shaker, then add other ingredients. Shake hard then strain over cubed ice in a hi-ball glass. Garnish with sliced lemon and a strawberry.

Raspberry Toast

Raspberry Toast

8 raspberries
30ml peach puree
20ml raspberry syrup
60ml pressed apple juice
