Portobello Road Gin and Tonic
Our signature drink. We suggest our lovingly distilled Portobello Road Gin is best served simply with a twist of pink grapefruit.
50ml Portobello Road Gin 100ml Premium tonic water Twist of pink grapefruit
Fill a tall glass with lots of good quality ice. Add the Portobello Road Gin and top with tonic water taking extra care to pour it as slowly as you can so as to maintain its effervescence. Cut a thin peel of pink grapefruit and twist over the top of the glass to release the oils from the skin. Place the peel in the drink and enjoy!
Our modernised recipe of a classic cocktail popularised in London during the 1880’s by John Collins of Limmers Hotel. Easy to make at home and the perfect refreshing drink for a hot summers day. For BBQ’s and parties why not make up a jug by increasing the quantities!
25ml Portobello Road Gin 17.5ml Lemon Juice 25ml Sugar Syrup 100ml Soda Water
Fill a tall glass with ice. Add the ingredients and slowly mix with a long bar spoon so not to disturb the effervescence. Finally add slices of lemon.
Ultimate Cooling Copa
A Copa for the summer season, the ultimate refreshing G&T, with super chilled tonic water, gin, and glasses & garnishes selected for their cooling properties.
50ml Portobello Road Gin, 200ml Premium Tonic Water, garnish with cucumber ribbons, watermelon cubes, spearmint and green apple.
This drink is all about cooling down so the secret is in the preparation. Keep your Gin in the freezer, put your tonic water in a bucket of iced water in the fridge into which you have also dissolved a desert spoon full of salt, keep your garnish fruit and veg in the fridge. Keep your glassware in the freezer.
When you’re ready almost fill the glass with ice, add the gin and slowly add the tonic, then use a vegetable peeler to cut long strips of cucumber, add 3 or 4 mint leaves, and a similar number of watermelon cubes (you can prepare these in advance) if you’re feeling really adventurous top the whole thing with a fanned apple “parasol” to keep the drink in the shade. Serve promptly.
