The Weekly Cocktail Recipe – Swift’s ‘Liberty’

Launched at the end of last year, Swift is the latest project from Bobby Hiddleston and Mia Johansoon, having partnered with husband and wife duo Rosie Stimpson and Edmund Weil – the team behind Nightjar and Oriole. In the heart of Soho, the venue is a statement bar that focuses on serving an elegant, grown-up cocktail offering. A number of traditional serves with a contemporary twist are on offer, with prominent leanings towards favouring dark spirits. What’s more, the bar is also equipped with a refined whisky library, showcasing a number of “interesting but affordable” whiskies.

This week’s cocktail recipe, for instance, is available from Swift and incorporates Woodford Reserve Bourbon with Sauternes dessert wine, absinthe, lemon, peach and honey.


30ml Woodford Reserve

20ml Sauternes

10ml lemon juice

10ml honey syrup

10ml peach puree

Orange bitters, 3 dashes

Absinthe, a dash

Mint leaves, a handful

Grated nutmeg

Lemon wedge


Shake all ingredients and strain over crushed ice.

Serve with a garnish of mint, nutmeg and a lemon wedge.
