This Spritz is all about freshness. Bush Gin is packed with herbaceous eucalypt flavour. Waxflower will shine through most other competing flavours and here the citric punch of yuzu and the fruit burst of a good Aussie riesling are no match for Archie Rose Summer Gin Project: Bush. Have a gnaw on the samphire garnish while you drink to add an extra punch of saline.
Yes. That's what we called it. If the country can name a swimming pool after a man who disappeared at sea we can name a cocktail after him. The first sip is the overwhelmingly petulant gentian kick of the Suze, the middle palate is the joyful cherry blossom waft of the Manchino Sakura, and it's all connected, ingeniously, with the saline fruit whack of Archie Rose Summer Gin Project: Coast. Bravo.
Once upon a time this drink was the Espresso Martini of its time, and unlike the Espresso Martini it was for good reason. It's almost impossible to describe in words. But let's give it a go. The Sherry (yes you do like it, no it's not just for grandmothers) gives a nutty, vinous note, the Coast Gin, a salinity that tempers the sweetness and the peach the hit of summer you so desperately wanted.
Has gin and juice ever been so good? No. I guarantee if you buy a dozen coconuts, a machete (or Coco Jack if you want to keep your fingers) you will make more friends by the beach this summer with this drink than you know what to do with.
A cobbler is a classic cocktail designed to show off the nuance of a spirit. Here we pair a good slug of Bush Gin with a collection of herbs (whatever you have growing in your herb garden will do), some cucumber and citrus. Capped off with soda this is almost good for you.
Our newest signature serve for Bush Gin is a riff on the old school Red Snapper. The Green Snapper is a green juice with a spicy backbone and bush base. You can alter the juice and spice ratio as you see fit. But here is how we do it in the bar.
