Forgive the terrible pun in the name, this is our take on that Sex in the City favourite The Cosmopolitan, but inspired not by the combination of citrus vodka and lime which dominate the original but instead by some of the flavours on your Christmas Dinner plate, namely parsnip and cranberry sauce.

The sweetness of our Directors Cut No.4 gin and the cranberry jelly tame the zest and sharpness of fresh lime juice. The whole comes out a vibrant plum colour and is a delicious drink to serve to your guest before Christmas dinner commences.

In crafting our signature serves we seek out only premium ingredients, spirits and mixers that compliment and showcase Portobello Road gin’s exquisite mix of 9 time honoured botanicals.

Blue Pea Spritz is a classic aromatic, effervescent serve perfectly suited as an early evening aperitif. An intriguing blend combing bitter herbs and citrus flavours, this drink has both kick and complexity. Named after the delicate flower that gives off such a vibrant colour we recommend a garnish of cucumber and edible petals to create a showstopping sipper.

Our twist on the renowned Clover Club cocktail is a richly complex, eye -catching creation. However, this colourful tipple is more that just eye candy with full flavours backed up by the robust peppery backbone of our gin.

A distinctly maritime take on the classic Martini cocktail. This sophisticated libation substitutes Fino Sherry for the vermouth used in the classic version, which enhances the salinity of Portobello Navy Strength Gin. We have then swapped the more usual olive or lemon twist for a pickled caperberry.

The Army & Navy is one of those classic cocktails where the true history has probably now been lost to the sands of time.  It first appeared in print in the seminal 1948 tome The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks by David Embury, so  it was probably created sometime in the years before that, which puts us firmly into the time of the Second World War.
