Workshop's Designer Cocktail Recipe

Here's how to make this summer train cocktail

The Bombay Sapphire Workshop 'Summer Train' cocktail.

To celebrate The Marr Factory 2015, Bombay Sapphire brand ambassador Chase Bickerton has created a series of bespoke cocktails inspired by each designer’s collection. Each will be available at the designer's show throughout the week - but you can replicate them at home with Chase's recipes.

"The Workshop collections features a floral / tiki / tropical themed garment or series of garments that really popped out at me. Just the name of our lead botanical, ‘Grains of Paradise’, conjures up beach imagery and a resort mentality. With melon finally coming full circle from 70’s trend to sweet, sugary crass back to fresh and in demand again I wanted to utilise its floral flavours with the Grains of Paradise heat, chocolate and elderflower notes."


  • 30ml Bombay Sapphire
  • 15ml Crème de Cacao blanc Liqueur
  • 15ml St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • 60ml fresh melon juice


  1. Shake the Bombay Sapphire, Crème de Cacao, St-Germain and lemon juice together.
  2. Strain into a short glass over ice, and top with melon juice. Stir.
  3. Garnish with a whole tropical beach scene / everything you can (melon / orange / flowers / mint / citrus / umbrellas etc) and serve. Or, make as a punch!
