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.

Cocktail snobs probably won′t consider the Dr Zhivago a cocktail! However, those partial to Dr Pepper are sure to love it.
