An Afternoon in the Highlands
10 mins preparation,

A sophisticated take on the classic G&T, this cocktail involves a fermentation process that brings a concentration of acidity, fruitiness and umami notes, all embraced with some quinine aromatics and a hint of floral smoke, for an extra layer of flavour.
