Where: Borough Market and Coal Drops Yard

If there’s anything that encapsulates weekend brunch more than this drink, then we’d like to see it. There’s also a spiced mango and a hibiscus and honeydew version, but this pale green margarita is really the one you want.

prosecco slushy at pastaioProsecco slushy at Pastaio

Where: Soho, Westfield

Obviously the pasta’s great at Stevie Parle’s Pastaio restaurants but, honestly, we’d go there just for the drink. Most specifically for the Prosecco slushies. They regularly change the recipe to make them seasonally appropriate - right now there’s a Blood Orange and Campari as well as a Lemon and Grappa version on offer.

Where: 14th Floor, 40 Blackfriars Rd, South Bank, London SE1 8NY

There’s a distinct south American vibe at this rooftop bar, what with all that tropical foliage, so where better to enjoy a classic Paloma given a frozen twist for the summer with bitter orange and grapefruit.
