Stunning Spring Cocktails
The finest cocktails to sip on this season
Spring calls out for cocktails, daylight saving may have originally been introduced for working long into the evening, but in 2016 this has evolved to drinking long into the evening. What else would be a better use of the long sunlight hours than sipping on a fine cocktail on a London rooftop terrace?
An expert recently told us a cocktail should take you around 45 minutes to drink, yes that’s forty five minutes, not four to five minutes as we mistakenly corrected.
We’ve picked some of the freshest cocktails perfect for the season below, so delicious we challenge you to make them last fourty five minutes ¦
What is BOLD?
Bold London Spirit was created by bartender Tomas Lenko who frustrated by the lack of naturally flavoured bitter spirits, set out to create something truly special to help bartenders elevate their liquid masterpieces.
Cherries were one of Tomaschildhood favourites, and became the base of Bold mixed with carefully selected floral botanicals. The overall result is a rich cherry spirit with a powerful, smooth but ever so slightly bitter taste at 36% ABV.

A blend of wild and beautiful in French, Sauvelle is named in honour of both its origins in the heart of the Cognac countryside and the people for whom it was created.
Sauvelle owes its delectably rich, elegant taste to a unique distillation process, starting with the finest French wheat and the celebrated crystal- clear spring waters of Gensac. The vodka is then unchill-filtered and oak-smoothed using chene du Limousin, creating Sauvelle’s indulgent signature notes of vanilla, caramel & cherry blossom.

1tsp Loose-Leaf Earl Grey Tea
25ml Egg White
