Basically, a Spritzer with a generous splash of Italian red bitter liqueur- dry and very refreshing. The perfect aperitivo.

Stinger image

Stinger

Classically the Stinger is shaken and served straight-up in a chilled coupe. However, we think it makes for a more refreshing peppermint and cognac digestif

A medium-dry Gin Collins.

The flavour of agave is king in this simple Margarita, made without the traditional orange liqueur.

Trinidad Sour image

Trinidad Sour

This deep lurid reddy-brown cocktail won't be to everybody's taste but that's only to be expected with one-and-a-half shots of bitters. However, if you
