Winning cocktail: In Honour
"Inspired by Athens, a cosmopolitan metropolis nowadays as well as an ancient urban centre of philosophy, culture, commerce just like modern day London. So what could better describe the combination of the London spirit with the Mediterrenean than a Negroni. "In Honour", based on Beefeater London Dry Gin is a white twist of Negroni which carries the most striking greek aromas. So, "In Honour" is in honour of all of us; Londoners, Athenians and whatever you think is worth drinking in honour of."
