Our/London's vodka, funnily enough, has Scandinavian roots – which makes sense when you see the sleek design of the bottles. Although it's made locally in London, it's part of a wider company called Our/Vodka, which has set up distilleries in 5 countries, each making a spirit that's born out of the character and ingredients of its local area. London's vodka is best enjoyed in a refreshing cocktail like this hibiscus collins. 


  • 50ML Our/London vodka
  • 20ML lemonade
  • 30ML sorrell punch

For the sorrell punch

  • 2 ¼ cups dried hibiscus flowers (sorrel)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 6 cloves
  • 1/3 cup fresh chopped ginger
  • 6 cups water

For the lemonade

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups lemon juice
  • 1 cup simple syrup 


  1. First, make the sorrel punch:place all of the ingredients except the water in a medium sauce pan or other heat safe container. In a small pot bring the water to the boil.

  2.  Make the lemonade: combine all ingredients and stir.
  3. Add ice to a collins glass. Next add lemonade followed by Our/London vodka.
