For five series now we’ve been enthralled by the exploits of the Shelby crime family and their gang, the Peaky Blinders, running amok in Birmingham after the First World War.

They rule the streets – and their leader Thomas Shelby coined the phrase ‘By order of the Peaky Blinders’. 

This cocktail has a razor-sharp zing – much like the gang themselves.

For 1 glass – Preparation: 10 minutes

  •  80ml (2²∕³fl oz) pink grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed
  • 40ml (1¹∕³fl oz) amber rum
  • 20ml (²∕³fl oz) Galliano

Insert the rim of a tall glass into the grapefruit half used to make the juice, then roll the glass in salt to create a salt-frosted rim. 

Fill the glass with ice cubes, add the rum and the grapefruit juice and finish off with the Galliano.

The Shelby family have enthralled us all for five series' now and fans are eager for the next
