The Great G&T Debate For us, there is one important debate that everyone should have their say on, and that’s what makes the perfect gin and tonic. Yes it is simple and delicious, but it can be oh so divisive.
To our brains, “flavour” is actually a fusion of a drink’s taste, smell and touch into a single sensation which is why garnish can be so important in cocktail creation. The role of your garnish to accentuate and influence the flavours inherent in your drink by activating your olfactory senses and the changes a garnish can make to “taste” cannot be underestimated.
Having a new gin to play with is always a treat and a great chance to either develop something new or create a fresh twist on a classic. With summer just around the corner here’s an easy, refreshing spritz recipe for you to enjoy. Cheers!
Creating your own syrups is a great way to create distinctive and unique flavour profiles in your drinks and a really fun way to utilise Australian botanicals in your next creation. Sugar syrups can be infused with lemon myrtle or salt bush, Falernums with river mint or even raspberry with Strawberry Gum.
