Alongside Jamaican food from The Jam Tree’s Brixton-born executive chef James Browne and reggae tracks compiled by Music Concierge, cocktails will include classics such as a Jamaican Mule and a Mary Pickford.

There are also originals including an Usain Bolt (pictured right), named after Jamaica’s six-times Olympic champion. It is made with Appleton Estate, Jamaican sorrel and sugar, topped up with prosecco or champagne.

The Shabba Ranks cocktail (pictured left), named after the Jamaican DJ and musician, combines Appleton Estate with Koko Kanu coconut rum, marmalade and ginger in a martini glass.
