With the ON-trade reopening getting closer, Love Drinks has launched the first instalment of its Love Cocktails Recipe Book featuring a selection of talented mixologists from London and Scotland.
Aiming to remind consumers of the incredible bartenders ready to reawaken the nation’s taste buds this spring and summer, the seven bartenders showcased were all paid to create two special drinks perfect for the sun-soaked seasons.
The Love Cocktails Recipe Book features Love Drinks’ brands including Conker Spirits, El Recuerdo Mezcal, Goslings Bermuda Rums, Hernö Gin, Pedrino Spritz, The Bitter Truth, White Heron Drinks and Zignum Mezcal.
The seven mixologists included Kat Stanley-Whyte (Unomas, Edinburgh), Liam Grogan (Flùr, Glasgow), Andrey Bartlett (The Tippling House, Aberdeen), Sarah Ben Saoud (Pali Hill, London), Luke Ridge (Lifting Spirits Media, London), Russell Burgess (Loves At, London) and Ramsey Keir (Goldfinch, London).
Samantha Burke, Managing Director of Love Drinks, said: “It’s been a tortuous year for everyone in the hospitality sector so as we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel and the reopening process begins, this Love Cocktails Recipe Book is a reminder to everyone of the utterly incredible bartenders and mixologists working in the UK.
“While the past 12 months has been a great opportunity to spruce up our cocktail-making skills at-home and discover some new drinks in lockdown, we’re big believers that there is no substitute for the real drinking experience so as restrictions are lifted, we implore you to get out there, show your support, visit your local bars and tip generously!”
Additional instalments to the book will be added throughout the year featuring different mixologists and bars from different parts of the UK.
