Lemon Lime & Bitters ‘Down Under’

August 03, 2018 | 0 Comments

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?! 😍
