Maiden Voyager

Balanced. Yet complex and exciting, like every inaugural flight. Rosemary infused Beefeater gin, lemon juice, pineapple juice, soda Shaken, served long over ice

Embrace the spirit (and spirits) of the capital. The Vesper was allegedly invented for Ian Fleming, who’s character James Bond sips it suavely in Casino Royale. Sipsmith vodka, Sipsmith gin, French white vermouth Shaken, not stirred

Vera Margarita

A blockbuster of a cocktail, which swaps orange liqueur for agave syrup. ‘Vera’ is a star in our midst and a sure fire smash hit. Jose Cuervo tequila, agave syrup, fresh lime Shaken, served straight


The cheeky little brother of the Caipirinha, switching cachaça for rum. Sailor Jerry spiced rum, fresh lime, chocolate bitters, brown sugar Shaken, served over ice

Fiercely Brazilian, the Caipirinha is loved by movers and shakers on both sides of the Atlantic. Sagatiba cachaça, fresh lime, brown sugar Muddled, served over ice

Named after the beating heart of NYC, this looker is a sophisticated classic. Woodford Reserve bourbon, sweet vermouth, angostura bitters, orange, maraschino cherry Stirred, served over ice

Pisco Sour

From Peru or Chile? Debatable. But it was a Joe Baum at La Fonda Del Sol in 1960s New York that made the Pisco Sour really fly. Beefeater gin, fresh lime juice, soda water, sugar Shaken, served straight


Whether it started life as the Daisy in the US or the Picador in London (answers on a postcard),the Margarita is a punchy, popular classic the world over. Jose Cuervo Classico Silver tequila, dry Curaçao, lime juice, agave syrup Shaken, served straight
