3. G&T with Lemon & Rosemary
The iconic gin and tonic with a touch of the complex flavours of rosemary and lemon. We bet you won’t be able to get enough.
4. South Side
A true classic, South Side will leave you wide eyed and refreshed, all thanks to a solid dash of lemon. It’s actually a Mojito in gin-style.
