3-Ingredient Cocktails To Try Right Now

Some cocktails come with all sorts of specialist ingredients in them that you may not have in your store cupboards at home right now because of the pandemic and lockdown restrictions - which have now been extended for a further three weeks.

But, luckily, there are lots of simple yet highly delicious drinks you can make at home and you don’t have to worry about compromising on taste or quality... sometimes simple is best, after all.

A refreshing drink hailing from Ital is the Negroni, perfect for this time of year. Apparently, this drink was invented when count Camillo Negroni paid his favourite coffee shop a visit in 1919, asking for a stronger version of his Americano (Campari, sweet vermouth and soda).

This cocktail can be made using dry gin, Campari and sweet vermouth, served on the rocks or stirred over ice before being strained into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a bit of orange and away you go.

For something a little more on the decadent side, what about a White Russian? It’s easy to make so perfect if you’re new to the fine art of mixology and all you need is vodka, kahlua and some double cream.

And if it’s a classic you’re after, there’s always the Cuba Libre, which features white rum, cola, some ice and half a lime. First, cut your lime into four small wedges and squeeze two of them into a tall glass. Then drop the other two in and fill the glass with ice, before pouring your rum in, followed by the cola.

We’d love to hear about your cocktail-making exploits, so come and see us at Covent Garden cocktail bar The Escapologist once lockdown is over to tell us all about it.
