By Jonathan Hatchman, Food Editor, @TLE_Food

French-born Sebastien Guesdon has made quite a name for himself over the past two decades. Having worked for acclaimed bars such as The Ritz hotel’s Rivoli Bar, Galvin at Windows, and the bar at roast, the qualified mixologist now serves as the general manager of The Lucky Pig and head barman at The Lucky Pig’s new Fulham venue. So in celebration of the opening, Guesdon has shared a recipe for Jimmy Barrat’s original ‘Tomatini’ cocktail that’s on the menu at The Lucky Pig.

Why not have a go at making it for yourself before heading along to the new Fulham outpost to taste the real deal?
