When it comes to entertaining, I’m decent at the big stuff. I can pop a few crowd-pleasers in the oven, and I can pick a great crowd of people, but mixing cocktails always feels like a big deal. I’m terrible at remembering all the bits and bobs needed for a good mix of drinks, so it feels like a real lifesaver to have found World of Zing’s award-winning bottles cocktails. You can choose from a whole menu of drinks, but I opted for a Rhubarb Cosmopolitan as a bit of a summery update on a delicious classic.
Delivered straight to your door, Zing’s cocktails are beautifully bottled, and slot straight into the fridge in preparation for your gathering. Much better than mixing something up yourself, World of Zing’s award-winning bartenders mix up each cocktail by hand in small batches, and use bespoke bitters, liqueurs and ageing experiences. It’s the best way to enjoy an artisanal cocktail I can think of, and it’s such a lovely treat to enjoy at the end of a busy week.
Serving couldn’t be easier – just pout 100ml into a martini glass, or Tumblr with ice, and enjoy. If I’m after something a little lighter, I’ve been mixing mine with a little club soda for a sparkling take on a classic. The use of rhubarb is really delicious, and the cocktail also contains Shisho leaf – a Japanese mint-like herb, which brings a real freshness to the drink. I can’t think of a better accompaniment to a summer evening!
World of Zing Rhubarb Cosmopolitan is priced at £12 and is available here
