The Thompson Tour 75 was created in celebration of the first 75 years of Mr Colin Thompson of Grayshott, and is based on the principles of the French 75. The ingredients are added from his key ports of travel. Ideally, the gin must be Tanqueray Ten, the lemon juice Sicilian, amaretto made with almonds from Mallorca, the apricot brandy from Corsica, and Limoncello from Amalfi, with a distinctive finish of Croatian Maraschino liqueur and garnish. To be totally authentic, the first sip should be taken standing in Brindisi at the base of the steps that mark the start of the Appian way.

Be Warned! Following consumption of a “Thompson Tour 75” any trip should be approached with caution. Your departure can be approached with the destination in mind and the certainty that you will, eventually, arrive. However, it is useful to accept that the route may not be direct and that for a considerable period you may not be confident in your current location.


Soak the cherry in maraschino in the bottom of a champagne flute. Add all the other spirits, juice, a little grated lemon zest and syrup with ice into a shaker and shake well. Strain into a chilled champagne flute. Top up with chilled champagne, and serve.
