With the weather getting warmer and the sunshine coming out, there’s no better to time to enjoy a herbal and citrus cocktail to embrace these moments. Using the Bathtub Gin as a base combined with a chilled oolong tea, the subtle cardamom and coriander notes are enhanced and create a beautiful combination with a floral honey syrup and zingy lime.

A big thank you to Noble Estates for providing this fantastic bottle of Bathtub Gin!
