About this Cocktail

A night off from work & some untapped creativity have resulted in a few quick concoctions; this is the first of three mixed drinks utilising fresh fruit & fresh herbs.

I landed on the name then searched the liquour shelf for ideas; I opted for anything remotely 'far east' from the UK - Bombay, mandarins, lapsang souchong, ginger.

The result :- smoky, smooth, fruity & a little herbaceous.

  • 3 Drops Bitter Bastards Ginger Bitters
