Posted by Eyes of Lady Wimbledon | 4 July 2019 | Food & Drink, Lady W Parties

When the Wimbledon Championships roll around again, you know it’s finally summer in SW19. Best way to celebrate? This Wimbledon cocktail created especially for Lady Wimbledon by the genius mixologists at Sipsmith will definitely tickle your tennis tastebuds… 

At the season-opening Wimbledon Tennis Party hosted by Lady Wimbledon at Cannizaro House, guests were served a bespoke cocktail designed with SW19 summers in mind… As well as some downright delicious G&Ts, Sipsmith whipped up countless Wimbledon Collins – an elegant take on that classic gin cocktail, the Tom Collins. This refreshing, delicious drink proved incredibly popular and disappeared quickly through the night.

For those who went wild for those luscious cocktails and are thirsty for more, you’re in luck! So many of you asked how it was made, we’ve shared the recipe for Wimbledon Collins for you here…

You can make these delicious tennis-party tipples in your kitchen, either for a barbecue or for a tennis party of your own.

WIMBLEDON COLLINS: THE INGREDIENTS

  • Ice (you’ll need lots, to fill up the glass!)
  • 40ml Sipsmith London Dry Gin
  • 15ml sugar syrup
  • 20ml lemon juice
  • 2 strawberries, sliced
  • Soda water to finish

It’s Time to Mix!

WIMBLEDON COLLINS: THE METHOD

The perfect Collins is all about the chill factor: so fill up a tall glass with ice, and add the gin, lemon juice, sugar syrup and stawberry slices. Stir, then top with soda water. Other tips from the Sipsmith master mixologists include chilling the glass beforehand, to keep it cold for as long as possible, and using the freshest citrus juice you can. You’re good to go!

If you want to impress your guests and make your cocktails look even more elegant, you could rim your glass with lemon juice and sugar before mixing, and garnish the top with a few mint leaves.

Trust us: this super summer cocktail recipe will wow your guests while watching the tennis. Cheers!
