CHAT

This cocktail is inspired by the Great British Summer, and more specifically Wimbledon! Champagne, strawberries and cream must be consumed as a rite of passage for any spectator at Wimbledon.Ali Burgess captured those flavours using modern methods.The Fagola imparts strawberry and the champagne cordial delivers just the right amount of acidity and sweetness.

TWIST/HACK

If you want another level of creaminess, we suggest you butter wash the Twenty.

CREATE YOUR HOME BAR

WITH A FEW SIMPLE TOOLS YOU”LL BE THE HOST OF THE TOWN

If you love your gadgets then you can go to town, but you absolutely do not have to. You can make great cocktails with not much more than a glass and a chopstick if you choose but a few key tools for your kitchen will help you along the way. Here are the things we have at home for our cocktail adventures:

1 GOOD ICE

The bigger the surface area to volume ratio the less your ice will water down the flavour of your drink. Think bigger is better. There are lots of ice trays and moulds out there that give you all kinds of shapes and sizes. Any old ice will do though to keep it cool!

2 A MIXING GLASS

This could be an heirloom from your great grandmother or any old mixing jug in the kitchen. Something to stir things up in.

3 A MEASURING JIGGER

Know what you are drinking. A 25ml unit of Twenty is half a unit of alcohol. Measuring is great, it puts you in control and it means you can make consistent, great tasting drinks.

4 SQUEEZER

One for every type of citrus fruit or a fork and a strong fist. Get out all that lovely juice and mix up some magic.

5 STRAINERS

You will want to strain out the chunky bits that can get stuck in your teeth. There are lots of great strainers to choose from, but a sieve in your kitchen will do just fine.

6 SIMPLE SYRUP

One for every type of citrus fruit or a fork and a strong fist. Get out all that lovely juice and mix up some magic.

7 KNIFE & PEELER

Add that bit of flourish and the zing of some citrus zest. Your potato peeler or a good sharp knife will work a treat.

8 BITTERS

We love bitters. There are so many out there to choose from or you can get really creative and make your own. Go for it and experiment to find the ones that you love to mix with Twenty.
