Absolut and Mr PORTER’s London Collections: Men cocktail

With the help of Mixologist, Mr Tristan Stephenson, Absolut and Mr PORTER create a cocktail in style.

When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.’Samuel Johnson’s words remain true to this day. 

The city – a dashing blend of culture, ideas, nightlife and style – rarely fails to pique a gentleman’s interest, something that flagrantly manifests itself in his choice of attire. A fine way of expressing his zest for London life, no doubt.

For centuries, the capital’s suavest men have donned a range of cool clothing, and they continue to infiltrate the Big Smoke with their unparalleled fashion sense.

Thanks to London Collections: Men (whose seventh season is about to kick off), the world’s audience now has a clear, Front Row view of all this fashion capital has to offer by way of male style – not to mention the talented home-grown designers who make these sartorial dreams possible.

To celebrate the upcoming four-day extravaganza of catwalk creativity, fashion heavyweights, fresh talent and model behaviour, we’ve combined forces with Mr Porter to create an ultra-chic cocktail…


Absolut Root of all Bubbles 


50ml Absolut Vodka

15ml lemon juice

10ml lime juice

15ml gomme

½ egg white

25ml goat's milk 

50ml beetroot juice 

Garnish with tarragon sprig


Pour all the ingredients into a Boston shaker and give it a spirited shake. Next, strain into a highball glass with no ice and, finally, top up with chilled soda. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.

In fashion circles, London has always been known for its "edginess", but sometimes it's best to go with the grain, especially when it's Absolut's distilled variety...
