These legendary bars are some of the best in London, fact. Lockdown's not gonna stop us from enjoying their gin-spiked drinks - here are the badass bottled cocktails to get involved in now. Let the fun be-gin.
Your home-bar bottled cocktail game just levelled up. Everyone's favourite jazz speakeasy has started delivering and the drinks are as f*ckin fantastic as we'd hoped. Nightjar is known for bringing their creative A-Game to cocktails, and these are no different. The Yorkshire Punch is a killer combo of tea, tart rhubarb, sweet honey, ginger heat... and 2 gins. Bring it on.
Add some flower power to cocktail o'clock with this bottled beauty from SUSHISAMBA. We're psyched our fave Peruvian/Brazilian/Japanese restaurant has started delivering their awesome cocktails, and this classic infused with cherry blossom is blooming lovely.
Step into the magical world of Callooh Callay this weekend, without needing to sneak through the wardrobe. We'll be cracking on with this floral, fruity, refreshing little number that has British summertime written all over it. Luckily the cocktail is way less temperamental than the weather.
Our favourite upscale tiki-bar of adventurous allure has only gone and started selling bottled cocktails!
The Vesper is such an epic creation from James Bond that we can almost forgive him for mangling a Martini by (shudder) shaking it. This version from sustainable, zero-waste haven Scout takes it next level. It's made with Eucalyptus and Violet Flowers and Bombay Sapphire from the 2 cocktail legends Matt Whiley and Rich Woods. F*ck yeah.
We might not be able to have an epic night out in Soho, but we're still gonna drink like we can, damnit. This sexy little spritz from one of our fave bars is one to drink on a balmy summer's night. Banging on its own or splash in a bit of Prosecco to pimp things like a G.
If anyone knows cocktails it's Mr Lyan, the legend behind some of our fave award-winning bars. You might not be able to get the world-famous mixology maestro to come make you a drink in your living room, but you sure as hell can order one of his creations. We're going for the Diamond Rickey - top with soda for a refreshing gem of a cocktail.
A little bit sexy, a little bit mysterious. Rich sherry, delicate Lillet Blanc and heady Palo Santo combine to make a kickass cocktail that has hidden depths. It's from Alex Kratena and Monica Berg so no wonder it's top-notch.
You can't beat a classic, and Three Sheets in Hackney have this nailed. Victory Gin, Dolin Blanc and dry white wine are masterfully mixed with lemon oil from the bar itself, and you'll feel suave and sophisticated just by holding this cocktail. We recommend you drink it though.
We're all for twisting up an old fave, especially when legendary barman Eric Lorincz is on the case. Here he's taken everyone's favourite Italian aperitif and given it a caffeine kick. Whether you're starting, going right on through, or ending the night with this baby, it's a killer cocktail that deserves a place on your bar cart.
