We patriotic Brits love supporting our sports teams and the Olympics are no exception! Whether you’re into running, high jump, boxing or water polo you’ll be glued to the TV this August. So why not invite friends and family round and make it a real occasion to celebrate.

Impress you loved ones by making some truly British cocktails? We’ve chosen some of our favourites and paired them with the perfect glasses and pitchers to ensure you wow your guests.

The Classic Gin & Tonic

Fill our Bar Excellence Gin & Tonic glasses up to the top with very cold ice cubes (a pre-chilled glass is even more ideal).
Pour in a 50ml measure of your favourite British gin and top up with tonic water to taste.
Garnish with a wedge of fresh lime (or lemon) and enjoy!
