Cocktails with Wellstead Shrubs

 

We have partnered with Wellstead Shrubs  from Mudgee to come up with some refreshing and colourful cocktails based on our Clair De Lune Gin and Nocturne Vodka. 

 

Raspberry Gin Cocktail

Wellstead's Raspberry Shrub is a colourful and refreshing option, for creating your own pink gin cocktail. The recipe we recommend uses soda to lengthen, as the Capi Dry Tonic we normally use doesn't do the flavour combination justice. 

The recipe is easy,  

  • High Ball glass 
  • 2 Parts Clair De Lune Gin 
  • 1 Part Wellstead 01 Raspberry Shrub
  • Cubed Ice
  • Capi Soda Water
  • Garnished with a slice of lemon or lightly bruised Mint.
