We’re spoilt for cocktail choice in London (not least having several of the world’s best bars on our doorsteps) and sometimes the options for a night out are overwhelming.
Do you want to try the Next Big Thing or go for a tried-and-tested classic? Sip something experimental or savour a well-made traditional tipple?
To make your next cocktail conundrum a little easier, we decided to ask people who drink magnificent mixes for a living (lucky them) for their recommendations. Thus, find here eight drinks given the boozy seal of approval from a selection of mixologists and industry experts.
Whether our professional hit list includes your favourite or introduces you to something new, boozy inspiration is never a bad thing. Just don't tell anyone else.
