Highballs, RTDs, Easy Tiki and summer drinking tips from Michele Mariotti, Head of Bars, Gleneagles
It’s the first day of June, so naturally we’re thinking easy sipping – whether we’re heading out to bars or keeping things simple but stylish at the requisite picnics, barbecues and festivals.
With that in mind, our first product review is the super tangy pre-mixed, non-alcoholic Sakura Paloma from Everleaf, followed by one of the most successful bottled cocktails in the past few years, the award-winning Mirror Margarita by Deano Moncrieffe from Hacha bars.
For the perfect summer serves, we suggest heading over to Soda & Friends in London City Island, where deftly balanced highballs are the stars of the glass. And for mixing things up at home, we’ve picked out ‘Easy Tiki’ by Chloe Frechette – it’s got all the tips you need for making the fabulous al fresco drinks.
Then it’s over to Gleneagles in Perthshire, Scotland to hear from Michael Maritoti on what’s in store for summer, how to make the perfect highballs and why a pre-batched Negroni should be in everyone’s fridge.
