First drink of the night at June’s Cocktail Club at the Good Spirits Co in Glasgow was this twist on the twelve mile limit from Martin and Rebeccca Cates excellent book of tiki drinks, Smugglers Cove. Sara chose a fine Armagnac for the brandy part and cut back on the lemon and grenadine to make a stiff and complex tiki sour. In her own words it was too interesting not to make.
