New Traditions: Bombay Sapphire Christmas Cocktails

I am lucky enough to get invited to more than my fair share of events but rarely find myself wishing they wouldn’t end like I did at last week’s party with Bombay Sapphire.

To launch the Bombay Sapphire New Traditions Christmas Collection (five artist-reimagined Christmas installations and Bombay Sapphire-filled cocktail collection), the brand took over Sushisamba and threw a holiday party to endorse boundary-breaking new traditions.

Under the likes of Richard Clarkson Christmas Baubles and DBLG & Brooke Roberts Christmas Jumpers, we sipped on everything from hot gin mochas to the exquisitely reinvented G&T you see below; the likes of which I’ve managed to nab the recipes for, just a little further down!

Here’s to new traditions…

120ml Bombay Sapphire
3 tsp caster sugar
