Mimosa

Let’s start with the most classic of all, and the easiest to make.

In a champagne flute

  • 40ml fresh orange juice
  • 80ml champagne

Pour the fresh orange juice directly into the champagne flute and mix in the champagne.

Bellini

The Bellini is traditionally made with Prosecco, Italy’s famous sparkling wine. We’ve opted for a more patriotic Champagne version.

In a champagne flute

  • 40ml peach purée
  • 60ml champagne
  • A dash of cane syrup

Pour the peach purée and cane syrup into the flute. Top it up with the champagne then carefully mix.

French 75

The name of this cocktail derives from a gun used in the First World War with a 75mm barrel and is the favourite tipple of Rick Blaine in the film Casablanca.

In a champagne flute

  • 30ml gin
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • 2 dashes of cane syrup
  • 60 ml champagne

Pour the ingredients into the flute and carefully introduce the champagne.

  • 40ml Cuban rum

Pour the brown sugar into a mojito glass, adding the lime chopped into four and the mint. Crush the ingredients with a pestle. Then pour in the rum and crushed ice. Add the champagne and don’t forget the bitters. A true delight!
