I made this cocktail for an event we did with Pantone and Airbnb. They’d turned a house in London into a beautiful inside-out garden house and wanted a green Bloody Mary for the event. This one’s also just as good without the booze.

Serves 1


  • 25 ml (3/4 fl oz) white rum
  • 25 ml (3/4 fl oz) green chilli liqueur
  • 125 ml (4 fl oz) Maria Mix (see below)
  • ice cubes, to serve
  • lime wedge, avocado slice,
  • cornichon and rosemary sprig, to garnish


Maria Mix

  • 1 cucumber, peeled and deseeded
  • 6 coriander (cilantro) sprigs
  • 50 ml (2 fl oz) Pickle Juice (see below)
  • 1 green pepper (bell pepper)
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 celery stalk
  • pinch of ground cumin
  • pinch of celery salt
  • pinch of ground coriander
  • pinch of coarsely ground black pepper
  • 100 ml (3-1/2 fl oz) water
  • 10 dashes green Tabasco
