It’s the soundtrack of summer: ice cubes clinking, effervescent bubbles popping and corks a-popping. Here’s how you can jazz up your backyard barbecue, summer dinner party or Sunday brunch. Colin Field, who helms the historic Bar Hemingway - an historic watering hole named after its most famous and perhaps most loyal client, Ernest Hemingway - at the Ritz Paris, shares the secrets to making the bar’s signature cocktail, The Serendipity.

A refreshing and sophisticated drink, it marries the flavours of apple with mint, and coats the mouth with Champagne bubbles.

Here’s the recipe for the Serendipity:

INGREDIENTS

2 cl of Calvados, an apple brandy from Normandy
3 cl of apple juice, made with bittersweet apples
1 teaspoon of sugar
Fresh mint leaves
Champagne

METHOD

Place fresh mint in highball glass.
Add sugar, Calvados and apple juice.
Top with Champagne.
