How will you be spending February 14, 2016?
Whatever you have planned we have the ideal libation for the event. A bit romantic, very smooth and perfect for the occasion whether you’re celebrating un deux, en masse or solo.
Sunday February 14, St. Valentines Day, is the traditional day of romance, thanks to several early Christian saints named Valentinus. (According to legend one Saint Valentine was famous for performing weddings for Roman soldiers who were forbidden to marry.) Through the ages these Saints have become the patrons of lovers and are now associated with cards, flowers, chocolates and other sweet symbols and tokens.
Our romantic icon is the Riberry Rose, a new cocktail from Dave Brown's mixologist team at The Cotton Thief (Cremorne, NSW). It combines the best of artisan Oz with our Riberry Shrub and Archie Rose Signature Dry Gin. This local Sydney Gin includes Lemon Myrtle, Pepperleaf and other Australian botanicals for it’s unique taste. And its traditional juniper berry element accentuates the Riberry Shrub’s tangy sweetness.
It's a 'kissingly' romantic cocktail and is titled accordingly. Who needs champagne?
Don’t forget the Rose Petal garnish!
