Stiff Richard


Stiff Richard

The Wimbledon Warbler has been the UK entry for Eurovision twice, finishing second in 1968 with Congratulations (the soundtrack to birthdays in Frankie & Benny’s throughout the land) and third in 1973 with Power to All Our Friends (no, I don’t remember that one either). Being the icon that he is, Mission Eurovision wanted to create a special cocktail in his name and so we bring you, the Stiff Richard.

The Stiff Richard doesn’t taste as ‘ginny’ as you’d expect. That’s because we use Plymouth gin in this recipe, it’s not as dry as most of the more popular London gins. And we’re from Devon, so it’s good to represent every now and again!
