Spear’s Ultimate Diamond Jubilee Street Party: Drink This

By Spear's

Champagne is clearly mandatory 1952 Taittinger is a good option but for something a little different we went to the Connaught Bar, where their charming mixologist Rusty created two bespoke cocktails for Spear’s.

Champagne is clearly mandatory — 1952 Taittinger is a good option — but for something a little different we went to the Connaught Bar, where their charming mixologist Rusty created two bespoke cocktails for Spear’s.

The ‘Connaught Royalty’ (pictured left) is inspired by the bounty of the Commonwealth and the understated elegance of Her Majesty. It’s just right for the midsummer sunshine.

Muddle a little fresh pineapple (or use 30ml of juice) before mixing with 15ml Vermouth and 10ml Maraschino liqueur. Strain into a chilled glass cradling a little ice (for added fun follow the Connaught and chip your ice from a huge block with a silver hammer) and top up with fizz.

For those after something incredibly grown-up, surprisingly soft and smooth with a beautiful garnet hue there’s also the Connaught Bar’s exclusive take on the traditional Dubonnet cocktail — the ‘Queen Elizabeth’. Chin chin!

30ml Gin
30ml Dubonnet
