There’s a heatwave coming, which calls for refreshing tipples – and nothing says summer like the taste of peach. Here Belgravia gastropub The Alfred Tennyson shares the recipes for four of their signature peach cocktails.

Peach & Basil Old Gin Fashioned

Short and sweet with a kick, a twist on a classic

Peach & Basil Old Fashioned

Ingredients

  • 50ml Gin (pick one with robust flavours)
  • 20ml Peach & Basil Syrup (15ml if you prefer your old fashioned less sweet)
  • 4 dashes of Angostura Bitters (not necessary but adds a different level to the drink)

Method

  1. Fill a whisky glass with ice.
  2. Add the syrup and then the gin and stir to combine.
  3. Add a few dashes of bitters and stir a bit more in order to dilute the drink.
  4. Once the volume of the drink has lifted up slightly it is ready. Don’t stir too long or you’ll water it down.
  5. Garnish with lemon peel (squeeze it gently into the glass to sprinkle it with citrus oils) and a slice of peach.
