With a moderate alcohol level, this is the immensely popular bitter-sweet Italian apéritif originating in 1919. Its unmistakable orange hue is like no other. Best served as an Aperol Spritz: with Prosecco and a dash of soda, garnished with a slice of orange, for a refreshing start to any occasion.
Ever since James Pimm first mixed a jug of this astonishing tipple in 1840, Pimm's has existed to politely but firmly insist that there are more important things to do than writing “to do” list…like catching up with good friends. Pimm's No.1 is the perfect drink for sharing; making every occasion extra special and deliciously memorable. Take a jug (or long drink glass) and fill it with ice. Mix one part Pimm's No.1 with three parts chilled lemonade. Then add some mint, cucumber, orange and strawberries - and enjoy. Made since the year 1840, from a closely guarded, secret recipe.
A herbal liqueur from Wolfenbuttel in Germany made from 56 pure botanicals: herbs, woods, spices, fruit, blossom, seeds and roots from around the world including cinnamon, citrus, star anise, cloves, ginger root, saffron and coriander. Serve ice-cold on its own, or mixed with tonic and lots of ice.
Mint liqueur Get 27 has been one of France's foremost cremes de menthe since 1796 and is a rather darker green than our photo might suggest. 'Get' is pronounced 'Jet' in this case due to the Gallic origin of the brand, while the 27 refers to the original alcohol percentage, which was subsequently reduced. So really it should be called 'Get 21', but they probably didn't want to confuse people.
Luxardo Limoncello is a distinctive, premium liqueur made with the juice of fresh lemons from Southern Italy. Although traditionally served as an after dinner drink, Luxardo Limoncello is great as a long drink when mixed with Prosecco. Alternatively, mix with lemonade or tonic water for a refreshingly fruity long drink.
Leblon is a rather tasty posh cachaça aged (briefly) in French oak barrels. Smooth and with no burn, this is good stuff.
