8 must-try cocktails in London, as recommended by mixologists

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.
