Groans of disappointment were heard all over the world as Sherlock producer Mark Gatiss (who also plays Sherlock's brother in the series, Mycroft Holmes) warns that the beloved British detective won't be back until 2016. Scheduling has been difficult due to the increasing popularity of its stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

But don't fret Sherlock fans; drown those sorrows and eagerly await their return by nursing on these beloved British drinks.

1. Tea –Think pensively and add up the mystery. Sherlock is always seen with a cup of this British afternoon favorite.

2. Pimm's – this classic was invented by James Pimm to accompany his shellfish recipe way back in the 1800's. This gin-based cocktail today is the go to drink at Wimbledon and Polo matches.

3. Bramble – Enjoy this sweet drinks and reminisces about John and Mary Watson's wedding. According to cocktail encyclopedia Diffordsguide, the Bramble was invented by Dick Bradsell at Fred's Club in London's Soho in 1984.

4. White Lady – Created in 1919 by Harry Mc Elhone in Ciro's Club, London, and this simple cocktail ends on a sour note much like the scenes in "The Reichenbach Fall."

5. Gin and Tonic – Sherlock loves history and it seems that the British has had a long relationship with Gin as depicted in William Hogarth's Gin Lane in 1751. This light drink is usually garnished with a wedge of lime and is perfect for warmer days.

6. Beer – Care for a pint in a pub? Or a pint in your home while watching past Sherlock episodes.
