London, UK: In the capital, the streets are packed to the rafters with people drinking drinks of the moment, with some even choosing to make their own.
Some are a bit more elaborate than others, but the main theme of the week-long party is the cocktails, which have been designed by a London-based design firm.
The company, Dice (www.dice.com) have released a collection of cocktail recipes inspired by classic cocktail recipes, which you can find on their Facebook page, where they offer more than 40 recipes.
Here are some of the highlights:Lemon ice cream in a vanilla and ginger syrup cocktail.

Dice also released a postcard picture showing a London street, with a large orange sign with a message reading: ‘Beware the street is full of gin and alcohol’.
“In the spirit of celebrating London’s rich history, we decided to combine gin and rum with a twist of lemonade and bitters,” the company said.
“We were inspired by the flavours and flavoursome cocktails made by the locals of London and wanted to make them accessible to Londoners as well as tourists.”
We wanted to share a simple, yet elegant style with our cocktail lovers.
“The drinks are also designed to complement a special cocktail night, with each cocktail being themed around a particular day of the year.
Cocktail nights are typically held at pubs and clubs, but some are also held in bars and restaurants.
This year, the party is being hosted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
In addition to a cocktail night for the public, there will also be a taste of London on tap at the Easter and the festival will be celebrated on the London Eye. While the mixes will be available for purchase, a limited number of bars and venues will also give away a limited number of cocktail drinks.
