It’s that time of year again!
Time to wrap up the summer break but not quite the end of the season. There’s still that final public holiday, barbeque and fireworks session to end January with a flourish.
Let’s finish off the month in style with a glorious Oz cocktail for the occasion. The Cotton Thief's Botanic Garden is cool, refreshing and novel. It includes some of Australia's best native ‘flora’ flavours and it's definitely a thirst quencher!
The Cotton Thief’s
30ml Elderflower Syrup
Juice of half a lime
2 slices of cucumber
Dash of soda
- Muddle all ingredients (apart from soda) together.
- Shake with ice.
- Single strain into a small glass and top with soda (about 30ml).
