Midsummer Drinks at Sabine Rooftop Bar

If you're a Londoner, then you've probably heard of St.Paul's Cathedral. It's resplendent white dome is an iconic landmark and makes for a beautiful view from a rooftop bar - just like at Sabine in London.



This week, Davide Valvano, bar manager and mixologist at Sabine is introducing two midsummer cocktails recipes which are refreshing, fruity and simple to make. The Whizz Fizz and Midsummer Margarita are the perfect summer drinks for a night al fresco with the girls. Grab the gin, get squeezing on those lemons, top up with some Prosecco and you've got yourself a professional tasting cocktail to sip on from your own rooftop (wait...and if you don't have a rooftop, just visit Sabine's)!
