The Cocktail Lovers Magazine Issue 48



Small bottles, big books & a perfectly-sized new bar – latest podcast

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


We start by mixing a special cocktail with Dima’s, a proudly Ukranian Vodka.

The rest of the show takes in two wee bottles with big ideas. There’s Beeble, a honey-infused whisky and Smål, a diminutive gin bursting with flavour and attitude. Our library pick makes no apology for its heftiness – each of the 900+ pages in ‘The Oxford Companion To Spirits & Cocktails’ is there for a reason.

And on to our featured bar, Seed Library. With its delicious drinks, groovy 70s-esque living room vibe and carefully curated vinyl collection, it’s a must-visit for oldies and newcomers alike.

Then there’s our sponsored interview from Geoff Robinson talking about the unique characteristics of Santa Teresa 1796 rum and the launch of the brand new City Solera programme.

What we’re mixing:

Ukranian Fizz
(serves one)

30ml Dima’s Vodka
10ml freshly-squeezed lemon juice
10ml limoncello
3 slices of fresh cucumber
90ml sparkling wine

Shake first four ingredients over ice. Double strain into a chilled flute or wine glass. Garnish with a strip of cucumber or lemon slice (optional).
