For the full LCW experience, we’d recommend taking a trip to the Cocktail Village in Brick Lane, an immersive festival of cocktails, with masterclasses and experiences from brands big and small. But if you can’t make it to that, don’t worry! Chances are your local bar has created a signature cocktail in honour of LCW - and you can buy as many of these £6 serves as you like when you purchase a £10 digital pass.
Head over to Mezcalito Chelsea for some fabulous cocktails with up-and-coming mezcal brand, Espiritu Corsa. Their Molecular Mezcal Negroni is made with Espíritu Lauro Mezcal, Aperol, passionfruit & a flower garnish, a perfect accompaniment to your Tinga Tacos. Get your hands on one of the Espiritu’s deliciously authentic mezcals, exclusively available at 31DOVER.

You can always count on TT Liquor to stir up something intriguing - and they’re certainly living up to expectations this LCW. Smooth, rich and with hints of chocolate, the O’Dorian is a stunner of a cocktail, made with The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey, hazelnut syrup and Aztec chocolate bitters.

Third on our list is the Discount Suit Company. Don’t be fooled, the tailor’s-stockroom-turned-underground-bar isn’t the place to go in search of a new tux. Their featured cocktail, Serenidad is a tangy yet smooth combo of Patrón Silver Tequila, citrus and lemon balm with chamomile & eucalyptus honey.

Fancy more choice? Head to Southbank’s Skylon Bar and sample their eclectic trio of cocktails, including an non-alcoholic option, the Grapefruit Smash. Sip their main LCW serve, Skylon Martini, as you take in stunning views of the river, made with Ketel One vodka, apple liqueur, ginger syrup, fresh lime and apple juice.
