The nation's best loved cocktails caused a bit of a stir recently when a survey by thebar.com revealed that, when it comes to choosing a favourite, we are a nation divided. Drinkers in London and Scotland are partial to a mojito, whilst the Welsh prefer a G & T and Midlanders are split equally between Pimm's and Lemonade and Gin and Tonic. We got creative and made our own versions of these three classic cocktails, mixing them up to create something that should hopefully satisfy all tastes.
1. Citrus Pimm's
We may be a lover of strawberries but this Pimm's drink packs a serious citrus punch.
50 millilitres Pimm's No. 1
100 millilitres soda water
1 slice each lemon, lime and orange
1 sprig mint
Fill a tall glass with ice.
Pour the Pimm's into the glass.
Add the lemon and lime slices and give it a mix.
Garnish with a slice of orange, slit with a sharp knife so it can sit on the glass, plus a sprig of mint.
