Cocktails for the Proms

The BBC Proms is drawing to a close in London and we can’t get enough of the classical tunes and arty vibes. Of course, we have been enjoying every minute with a cocktail in hand, ensuring that each beverage perfectly matches with our musical mood. Here are some of the very best cocktails to enjoy on the last day of the Proms.

Classical St Clements

Created by the Ivy Kensington back in 2016, this fruity cocktail was made especially for the Proms, celebrating the bar’s proximity to the event. Much like the traditional St Clements drink, this cocktail contains a combination of orange and lemon juice, but with a cheeky shot of gin to make it far more interesting.

Classical Lady

The perfect cocktail for a lady who knows about the finer things in life. Or a man that appreciates a classical lady, I suppose! Made up of Cointreau, vodka and grape juice and perfectly finished with lime juice and a sprig of mint leaves, you can’t help but feel sophisticated when drinking this concoction.

Pimms Punch

While it might not have the elegance of some of the other cocktails in this list, Pimms has become the liqueur of choice during the great British summer and this fruity punch is incredibly moreish. Instead of combining with lemonade, as per tradition, this drink uses cider, and plenty of it, to make for a bowl with a kick! Of course, the fruity garnish cannot be forgotten.

Mojitos

If you were unable to get to the Proms to enjoy them in all their live glory, you might want to do your best to recreate the atmosphere at home, in front of your TV. The Arena Bars at the venue serve an impressive variety of Mojito drinks, including the traditional cocktail with rum, lime, sugar and soda water. You could also enjoy a Mixed Berry Mojito, which substitutes soda water for lemonade and includes a healthy portion of muddled berries, or a Mojito Royal, which uses champagne in place of soda water.

Gin and Tonic

If all else fails, grab yourself a simple but satisfying glass of G&T, a British staple in the cocktail world, thanks to its smooth, bitter tones. Add some edible flowers to give it a summery, floral twist, or add a squeeze of lemon or lime for a fruity finish.

The BBC Proms comes round just once a year, so make sure to get your fill of classical music and classic cocktails while you can!
