We tend to be creatures of habit and stick to the same cocktails, partly because we already have the necessary ingredients in our cupboards. The key ingredient in an Army and Navy is Orgeat syrup, a delicious combination of almonds, orange flower water, rosewater and sugar. It’s a fairly unknown ingredient but is definitely worth purchasing and will make a welcome addition to any drinks cabinet.
The Moscow Mule is a cocktail made with vodka, spicy ginger beer, and lime juice. Traditionally the Moscow Mule Cocktail is served in a copper mug and records indicate that it was created in Manhattan around 1948. A non-alcoholic version can be found in our mocktail section and is called a Virgin Moscow Mule.
The Queen’s Cocktail is similar to a Perfect Martini, but with the addition of pineapple juice.
