A summer favorite, this alcoholic punch is served with fresh fruit. It’s great at barbecues, and you’ll also see it everywhere at sports events, such as Wimbledon tennis.

Dandelion & Burdock

Usually served as a cordial, this traditional combination combines the roots of dandelions with burdock leaves. Look out for natural recipes if you can, or try one of the manufactured drinks powering the resurgence of an old favorite.


These days you can find gin all over the world, but it retains a certain Britishness. Order a gin and tonic in a London pub and enjoy a quintessentially English tipple.

Ginger Beer

Since the 17th-century, Britons have supped on a low-alcohol, fermented drink known as ginger beer. These days you will often find non-alcoholic versions, great on hot summer days. It is also commonly used as a mixer with a shot of rum.


A list of traditional British drinks wouldn’t be complete without tea. While tea doesn’t grow in the United Kingdom, the citizens of the country are famed for their obsession with the drink. Rain or shine, you’ll always be able to get a cuppa.
