While we all love a night out on the town every once in a while, sometimes, nothing beats having a drink at home.
But if you’re anything like us, you’re probably far from a talented mixologist, so enjoying a crafted cocktail in the comfort of your own home probably rarely happens.
Well, we have a solution for you. Harvey Nichols Birmingham has launched its very own range of signature cocktails that are delicious and fuss-free to make. The collection of ready to pour favourites include Old Fashioned, Vesper Martini and Negroni, with prices starting from just £6.
The Harvey Nichols Old Fashioned has been crafted using woody Old Forester Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey, Fee’s Brother’s aromatic bitters, orange oil and muscovado sugar. Perfectly balanced in flavour, simply serve over ice with a slice of orange or twist of peel to garnish.
The Vesper Martini, known as James Bond’s favourite drink, is handcrafted using Portobello Road gin, Fair vodka, Lillet Blanc and a dash of lemon oil. Serve ice-cold in a chilled Martini glass and garnish with a thin slice of lemon peel.
While the Harvey Nichols Negroni has been made in small batches using Portobello Road gin, Italian sweet vermouth and Campari, all of which have been mixed and delicately stirred by hand. Serve in a rocks glass over plenty of ice and add a twist of orange peel or a slice of orange to garnish.
Speaking of the range, Head of Food & Beverage Buying at Harvey Nichols, Rob Graves, said: “We are thrilled to be adding a range of pre-mixed cocktails to our Own Label spirit category.
“After months of testing to create the perfect flavour profiles of three classics, we are very happy with the outcome. We have also been working on a fourth cocktail, a festive Blood Orange and Clove Negroni that will be launching at Christmas.”
The pre-mixed cocktails are available now from the Wine Shop at the luxury Mailbox store, priced at £6 (for a 100ml one serving) or £35 (for 700ml, approximately seven servings).
