Cocktails should be fun. Full Stop. For this very reason, I created this very loose twist on a classic Gin & Tonic, incorporating the alluring tropical flavours of bright & vibrant melon, challenging the imbiber with a brand new cool & calming cucumber tonic. Best word of advice is to be creative, think of unusual combinations, don’t be afraid to experiment, practice, practice, practice & learn from any mistakes. Above all else, have fun with it!
