Lemon Lime & Bitters ‘Down Under’
Dry July may be finished but we still ❤️ mocktails! Refreshing and alcohol-free they’re always a favourite thirst quencher. It’s fun to give a classic a local new ‘look and here’s our translation of the timeless Lemon Lime & Bitters combo with a ‘Down Under’ twist!
We start with the traditional LLB 101 recipe. With 3 basic ingredients it’s a quick and easy drink too. Our special ‘flavour difference’ comes from our local Aussie ingredient ‘modifications’. 😋
We have swapped basic lime cordial for very own Rainforest Lime Shrub. Based on a historical recipe and made with the indigenous Australian Bush Limes, its taste is flavourful and uniquely vibrant.
We’ve picked a local (OK Melbourne) instead of the traditional lemonade too. It's a multi-cultural choice, Capi’s Yuzu soda, for a ‘same/same but different’ finish. The Japanese fruit flavoured drink has a lighter taste while still citrus 'tart'.
Our bitters however, are the classic and timeless Angostura. Why play with perfection?! 😍
