To celebrate Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday, the head barman at a London hotel created cocktail 46664 - after the great man's inmate number while he was imprisoned between 1964 and 1990. After a concert in London's Hyde Park last month, Robert Gaggl at the Cavendish Hotel in nearby Jermyn Street decided to create the cocktail, with 50 per cent of the proceeds going to Mandela's 46664 charity.

The recipe was inspired by South African oranges and sugar cane, combin ing Cointreau with fresh orange juice, Hennessy VS Cognac and Harvey s Bristol Cream.
