Whilst we may no longer be visiting our favourite bars and cocktails clubs, the brains behind the cocktails haven't stopped whirring away and we couldn’t miss the chance to tap into that energy. We’ve been working with some of Birmingham and London's top bartenders to bring you some truly original cocktail recipes. So without further ado, let's us introduce these cocktail connoisseur.
Angelo Lo Greco with the Barima Waini (angelo_logreco)
Angelo can normally be found working as the Bar Manager at the prestigious Milestone Hotel. We were truly honored that he took the time to whip up this delectable cocktail, the Barima Waini, and even more so that he created this top-class video to match. Our hats go off to you Angelo.
The Barima Waini

Shake and Strain all ingredients and garnish with a Yamazakura.
Max Corton with The Island (island.max)
Introducing Max, a self proclaimed retired tikitender. He's treated us to the aptly named The Island, which we can confirm is a real scorcher. A super simple cocktail but full of flavour and packs a punch - not one for the faint of heart.
