London Design Agenda parked down on bar stools across the capital and sipped away on some serious drinks so we could deliver to you our list of the 100 best bars and pubs in London. But from our research there were some tipples that truly shone. If you’re a booze enthusiast, read on, as we serve up our list of the best cocktails in London.
Sumac My Bitch Up at Peg & Patriot
Greek yoghurt gin, kummel, lemon, cucumber, sumac honey
The play on words at Peg & Patriot is almost as good as the cocktails. Try this tipple to see what the bar is all about – crafting spirits in house and packaging them up with novel ingredients, like the tangy golden honey that gives this drink name.
Marsala martini at Bar Termini
Gin, sweet marsala, dry vermouth, almond bitters
It´s either coffee or cocktails at Bar Termini and if you ´re opting for the latter, we salute you. We also recommended the marsala martini as onde of the best things we´ve drunk in tha last few months.

Tokyo Collins at Happiness Forgets
Gin, yuzu, saké, lemon, grapefruit, sugar, soda
Innovative cocktails are the name of the game at Happiness Forgets, but bar staff neve lead you astray thanks to a tight grasp ofo the cocktail fundamentals. This oriental option is a winner.
Satan´s Whiskers at Satan´s Whiskers
Gin, dry vermouth, sweet vermouth , Grand Marnier, orange
This Bethnal Green bar has brought an often Overlooked orange-flavoured cocktail classic back into the zeitgeist. The menu changes daily, so in the absence of the bar´s namesake cocktail, order the Satan´s Manhattan, or any other house twist on the clasic. They´re all devilishly good.
Bulletproof Martini at White Lyan
Tequilla, distilled coffee, coffee oil, vanilla
They don´t do things by the book at White Lyan and the Bulletproof Martini just proves that a bold (and caffeinated) approach is best. Square Mile coffee oil is used to elavte this beyond your average expressso martini concoction.
