So share your ideas and pictures with us on Twitter @imbibeUK or on Facebook.com/imbibeuk.

Colombo, London Dry Gin


QUEEN ANNE'S LASSI

Zoë Van der Grinten, White Lyan

Based around the shrub, as the name might suggest, Zoë van der Grinten’s drink ticks the health box

While waving the British fl ag and providing a little something extra. ‘I wanted to make sure that each ingredient was linked to a health benefi t while showcasing British ingredients that are influenced by Asia,’ she says. The light and fresh simple serve has undeniable depth.

The former White Lyan bartender says Colombo London Dry Gin was an obvious choice to complement the powerful flavours
that are at play in the glass. ‘Colombo Gin works perfectly with the notes of curry leaf and ginger root tying in with the earthiness of the carrot shrub.’ And when it comes to taste, Van der Grinten says: ‘Savoury with notes of spice and a bit of a coconut fi nish.’
