Summer serves: Cleopatra



In our final cocktail recipe for the season, we present an elegant sweet-sour concoction made with the most serious (and extremely fashionable) soft drink on the market – Seedlip.

No longer does a night off the hard stuff mean water or lemonade. The sober-faced gap in the market has been filled by the first non-alcoholic spirit, Seedlip – solving the problem of “what to drink when you’re not drinking”. While delicious served G&T style, the complex spirit, with notes of clove, all spice and citrus, works equally well in cocktails. Our current favourite is the Cleopatra, with a twist of white balsamic vinegar and thyme balancing more usual lemon and peach notes.

  • 60ml Seedlip Spice 94
  • 10ml lemon juice
  • 10ml ginger syrup
  • 5ml white balsamic vinegar
  • Quarter of a peach
  • Two sprigs of thyme
  • Dash of egg white

Shake with ice and strain. Serve in a coupe and garnish with a sprig of thyme.
