A taste of summer

In the last episode in this current season, it's all about the summery feels…

Our product reviews takes our tastebuds to sunny Mexico as we sample Nixta De Elote, an intriguing corn liqueur, and Vida De Muertos, a new expression from Del Maguey Mezcal. Bar-wise, we keep things a little closer to home as we head up to the terrace at The Nest at The Treehouse Hotel to soak up the sublime views and taste the delicious seasonal cocktails.

Then on to our book choice, which is all about the man who brought rays of light to the London bar scene: Mr Dick Bradsell, in the hot-off-the-press 'Dick Tales – Thank Yous and Sluggings' edited by Anistatia Miller and Jared Brown.

Lastly, we couldn't reference summer drinks without talking tiki, and we couldn't talk tiki without catching up with Sly Augustin, owner of Trailer Happiness. Tune in to find out how he brings the sunshine vibes to his basement bar in London's Notting Hill.

What we're mixing:

White Port & Tonic

50ml Graham's Blend No5 White Port


Lemon wheel and mint sprig to garnish


Pour the Graham's Blend No5 into a Highball or wine glass with plenty of ice. Top up with tonic and garnish with fresh mint and a lemon slice.
