Today I want to share my favorite English drinks with you.Given my last blog post was about经典的英式菜肴, I thought it would make sense to bring you some beverages to pair with the foods.So read on for A Lady in London’s guide to traditional English drinks.

Books about English Drinks

If you want a cocktail recipe book to help you make some of these English drinks, I recommend官方唐顿庄园鸡尾酒书:适合各种场合适当祭酒

This collection is inspired by the characters and traditions of the popular TV show and movie唐顿修道院。If you’re in the UK, you can得到它在这里。If you’re in the US, you can得到它在这里

1.Pimm’s

Given my favorite English drink is Pimm’s, I’ll start my list here.I had never heard of Pimm’s before I moved to London, but now it’s my favorite British summer drink.

But what is Pimm’s, you ask?Officially called Pimm’s No.1, it’s a gin-based liqueur flavored with herbs, spices, and caramelized orange.

The cocktail of the same name is a blend of Pimm’s No.1 and lemonade (that’s carbonated lemon soda for non-Brits) poured over ice.It’s finished with generous helpings of mint sprigs, cucumber, orange slices, and strawberries.

It’s sweet and refreshing, and perfect for a summer day.I love drinking Pimm’s outside on a terrace or at a河边的酒吧when the sun is out.

Oh, and a word to the wise: don’t call it Pimm’s Cup or Pimm’s and Lemonade unless you want to look like a foreigner.Trust me.I know this from firsthand experience.

2.English Cider

If you want something you don’t have to mix, make, or brew yourself, cider is one of the best English drinks.There are lots of different kinds of cider around, and it’s a great alternative to beer if you’re at a pub.

One of my favorite travel memories in England was a trip I took to go葡萄酒,苹果酒和啤酒品尝肯特。I spent a couple days touring wineries, cider makers, and breweries to learn about the area’s famous English alcoholic drinks.

Given I’ve toured a lot of wineries and breweries in my travels, the cider element particularly fascinated me.It was fun to learn about the process of cider making and sample the surprisingly wide variety of flavors cider can come in.

So whether you prefer sweet or dry, classic or flavored, it’s worth trying English cider if you want to experience a taste of the countryside.

3.Martinis

Next on my list of English drinks is the martini.Everything from the Breakfast Martini to the Espresso Martini was invented in London, and no list of classic British cocktails would be complete without it.

The Breakfast Martini was invented by cocktail legend Salvatore Calabrese while he was working at the Library Bar at The Lanesborough hotel in London in the 1990s.

Made with gin, triple sec, lemon juice, and a spoonful of English marmalade, it makes me think of something a grown-up Paddington bear would drink.

The Espresso Martini was created by famous mixologist Dick Bradsell while he was working at the Soho Brasserie in the 1980s.

Made with vodka, a shot of espresso, sugar syrup, and splashes of Tia Maria and Kahlua, it’s the perfect cocktail to get the party started.

Rounding out the martini selection, the Vesper Martini is said to have been created by writer Ian Fleming and was influenced by his trips to Dukes Bar at Dukes hotel in圣詹姆斯in the 1950s.

Made with three shots of gin, one shot of vodka, and half a shot of Lillet Blanc, it’s the classic James Bond cocktail.

Whichever martini you prefer, these English drinks will take you on a tour of伦敦最好的鸡尾酒酒吧from the comfort of your home.

4.英国起泡酒

Back to drinks you can enjoy without having to mix them, one of my favorite English drinks is sparkling wine.I know, I know.English wine?But it’s a thing, and it’s actually pretty good.The sparkling kind, anyway.

The chalk soil in the south of England is similar to that in the Champagne region of France, and English sparkling wines have taken off over the last decade.It’s even rumored that some of the finest were served at the Royal Wedding in 2011.

From Kent to Cornwall, wineries have popped up all over England’s south coast.I’ve gone tasting at a few of them and have enjoyed sampling the variety on offer.

英语起泡葡萄酒并不便宜,但磨破th splurging every once in a while to get a taste of the British terroir.From Chapel Down to Camel Valley, there’s no shortage of them on offer.

5.English Ale

I’m not a big beer drinker, but I couldn’t write a blog post about English drinks without including ale.It’s a staple of many English people’s diets, and the drink of choice at a lot of pubs.

I could write a book about English ales, but since I have limited space I’ll stick to a few of the most famous.Popular ones include the award-winning Greene King IPA.This easy-drinking session ale has a hoppy taste and aroma.

There’s also St Austell Proper Job, an award-winning modern IPA made with a blend of imported American hops.This refreshing ale has notes of citrus and pineapple, and a crisp bitter finish.

There are also special brews like Shepherd Neame’s Spitfire Premium Kentish Ale.It was created in 1990 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

Drinking English ale is a great way to virtually transport yourself to a cozy British pub even if you can’t travel in England.

6.杜松子酒

While technically not invented in England, the British Gin and Tonic is such a classic English drink I can’t help putting it on my list.This quintessential cocktail is up there with Pimm’s when it comes to being a drink of choice on a summer day.

And given the explosion of gin’s popularity in recent years, there’s no shortage of English gins to pair with your tonic.

From Plymouth to the伦敦市, distilleries across England mix and match botanicals to please people’s palates.

And that’s to say nothing of tonic water.From tried-and-true staples like Fentimans in诺森伯兰to newer names like Folkington’s in东苏塞克斯, there’s no shortage of companies putting the “T” in G&T.

So whether you like your gin heavy on the juniper or your tonic packed with garden varietals, you can mix and match your perfect blend to taste the best of England.

7.巴克法斯特

Okay, so this is not one for the faint of heart.Or refined of palate.

But friends jokingly introduced me to it on a train from新城堡to London ages ago, and it’s such a bizarre one that I can’t help but include it on my list of English drinks.

So what is Buckfast?It’s a caffeinated fortified red wine.It tastes pretty much what you’d expect a caffeinated fortified red wine to taste like.Which is to say pretty bad.

Originally made by monks at Buckfast Abbey in德文in the late 19th century, it’s based on a traditional French recipe.

Initially marketed as a medicinal product, today it’s better known for its associations with students, Scottish football hooligans, and nonconformists.

Whether you self-identify as any or all of those things, tasting Buckfast is a cultural experience you won’t forget.Just make sure to have something nearby to wash the flavor out of your mouth after your first sip.

8.Squash

If the idea of Buckfast turns your stomach, I’ll gently introduce you to non-alcoholic English drinks starting with the oh-so-benign squash.

This is a drink that has confused me since I first moved to London, but since it’s such a staple I have to include it in my list.

Squash is a flavored concentrated syrup made from fruit juice, water, and sugar.Popular squash drink flavors include orange, apple, blackcurrant, and citrus.There are also blends.

Squash is usually mixed with water to make a diluted drink, and I always associate it with tricking children into getting hydrated.

But most of my adult friends drink it, too.Maybe it’s a childhood comfort food thing.Maybe Brits have a different set of taste buds than I do (although almost all my ancestry is British, so that theory might not hold up in a lab).

Either way, I struggle to get on board with squash.It always tastes like it can’t decide whether it wants to be water or juice.But at least it’s better than Buckfast.

9.English Tea

Given the茶树plant isn’t traditionally grown in England, I debated whether to put tea on my list of English drinks.But it’s such a staple part of the culture that I couldn’t very well leave it off.

That’s not least because there are a lot of great English tea companies that pride themselves on sourcing the highest quality tea leaves from around the world and putting their stamp on the product before it goes to the consumer.

From Hampstead Tea with its organic and biodynamic offerings to Tea Pigs with its whole leaf tea, there are a lot of English companies focused on quality.

Some of my favorite teas are from Fortnum & Mason, one of London’s most beloved department stores.The ground floor of its皮卡迪利shop is a tea lover’s heaven.

Fortnum’s has an endless selection of teas and herbal infusions from around the world.There are biscuits galore, too.

和饼干来说,第一件事,当我搬到伦敦,我学到一个是饼干中的重要性英国茶文化。而事实上,你永远不应该把它叫做一个cookie。即使它是。那里。我说了。

茶一杯没有将是不完整的陪同甜点,最好的饼干在英国大争论的话题。

说真的,如果你曾经努力使对话以英文的人,只是在一些下降约你怎么想Hobnobs优于巧克力太难并勇敢去面对的冲击。
