While it may seem a slight contradiction in terms, the ‘healthy cocktail’ is precisely how we intend to justify our summertime libations. Rather than a heavy Pina colada or a sugar-laden Long Island iced tea, try a creation from one of these spots to keep you feeling fresh for the entirety of your evening.
Get yourself to Papa Gede’s for a guaranteed good time that comes ‘infused with the spirit of witch-doctor apothecary’ – we’ll take two doses thanks ‘doc. While the ‘Tiki Bastard’ is immensely tempting, give the ‘Mojo Moxie’ a go for its matcha-steeped Archie Rose gin, lemon, sugar and egg white tonic that will leave you feeling utterly virtuous. The ‘Divine Intervention’ with absinthe, apple, passionfruit and lemon is another must-try.

When you’re in town and itching for an escape, make a beeline for The Morrison Bar & Oyster Room for a crisp beverage alongside a helping of fresh oysters. The earthy yet sweet ‘Love Street’ cocktail brings together Don Julio tequila, pomegranate treacle and sea salted beetroot for a complex flavour dynamic that will have you hooked.
