It was the great David Sedaris who said: ‘No amount of physical contact could match the healing powers of a well-made cocktail.’ Indeed, a great cocktail doesn’t start and end with ingredients, but it should also incorporate the atmosphere of the bar it’s served in, along with the chatter, the bartender’s elegant moves – and, of course, the glass.

2. Old Fashioned 

Ingredients
2oz/ 50ml Woodford Reserve

.25oz/ 10ml Creme de Mure 
.75oz/ 20ml lemon juice

Leave room at the top of your glass and drizzle the Creme de Mure. Be careful not to over-pour as this will make the drink too sweet. Garnish with three raspberries on a pick.
