The White Lady cocktail is an elegant classic. Legend has it this citrussy twist on the gin sour was created at the American Bar in The Savoy and named after F. Scott Fitzgerald’s wife. Try this stylish version by Oren Coleman, group bar manager at Ottolenghi’s Rovi restaurant. Looking for more cocktail recipes or gin cocktails? Look no further.

Chill a coupe or martini glass in the fridge or freezer. Peel one long strip of zest from the lemon; juice the lemon and set aside.

Stir the sugar with 25ml hot water until dissolved, to make a syrup. Set aside.
