Wimbledon Championships Inspired Cocktails from The Milestone, London
To create this cocktail, simply combine the ingredients and pour into your cocktail glass. At The Milestone this drink is served over a yellow ice ball. Commenting on the new cocktail, The Milestone team says: “This is for our all-time favorite player, the Swiss tennis king, the legend that is Roger Federer. He’s the most successful Wimbledon tennis player ever with seven consecutive wins, 11 in total.”
This rich, strong and powerful cocktail was created in honor of Serena Williams. The Grand Slammer Serena is served in a rock glass and poured over a hand-chiseled block of ice with a sprinkle of smoked sea salt on top.
This cocktail is the epitome of ‘sugar & spice and all things nice,’ says The Milestone team. The cocktail is served in an elegant beer glass over crushed ice and decorated with a sprig of lavender, along with mint leaves and chopped strawberry.
Created in honor of the new British talent coming to the game, this drinks reflects the British summer and the anticipation of things to come. The Wimbledon Newbie is served in a Bloody Mary glass with a hand-cut ice cube, then finished with a desiccated lime wheel and fresh rosemary.
This cocktail was made in honor of the reigning champion Andy Murray. Murray’s Smoke over the Highlands is made with fine Scottish whisky and served over ice in a crystal wine glass, with a garnish of fresh rosemary. The cocktail is smoked as a final touch.
Each of these cocktails will be served at The Milestone hotel during the Wimbledon Championships. But more than just offering these specially-created drinks, the hotel is hosting a Wimbledon afternoon tea featuring specialties like a lemon drizzle ‘tennis ball’. Guests staying at this time also have the opportunity to book a special Wimbledon package in which they’ll receive Centre Court Debenture tickets and the best food and wine the hotel has to offer.
