1. The Sipsmith Cocktail Trio

The Campari Spritz

25ml Campari (use aperol if you prefer a softer flavour)

75ml white wine

75-100ml chilled sparkling water

Combine Campari or Aperol with white wine in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake well (about 20 seconds). Strain into a highball or suitable glass. Top with sparkling water.

The Gin Fizz

2 tsp sugar

100ml chilled sparkling water

25ml Sipsmith London dry Gin

25ml fresh lemon juice

Combine sugar and a splash of sparkling water in a cocktail shaker. Mix with a spoon until it’s at least half dissolved. Add gin and lemon juice, fill with ice and shake. Strain into a glass. Top with sparkling water.

Varsity Cooler

35ml Sipsmith barley vodka

15ml blue Curacao

1 dash Luxardo maraschino liqueur

100ml chilled sparkling water

Combine vodka, Curacao, and maraschino liqueur in an ice-filled shaker. Shake well. Strain into a highball glass. Top with sparkling water.

2. Orange Blossom

10ml orange blossom honey

50ml bombay Sapphire

100ml lemon tonic

Garnish: 1 straw, 1 very long orange peel twist

Acclaimed florist Robbie Honey designed this drink, inspired by his love for orange blossom. Drizzle the honey into a tall glass and add the Bombay Sapphire. Stir then add ice. Top with lemon tonic and stir. Run the orange peel round the rim then feed it into the glass.

6 edible nasturtium flowers (available from specialist food shops)

A splash of rosewater

1-2 tsp golden caster sugar

A 75cl bottle of chilled prosecco

Pop a nasturtium in six champagne bowls. Add a drop of rosewater and a pinch of sugar to each glass, and top up with prosecco. Simple but intoxicating.
