Ink, Nice & Ice Tea

45ml Ink Gin

15ml framboise syrup

15ml lemon juice

15ml sugar syrup

75ml green tea

Angostura Bitters

Add all ingredients to a shaker. Fill with ice and shake hard. Strain into an ice filled glass. Garnish with cucumber, rosemary and pomegranate seeds.

In sub-tropical Northern NSW, our Christmas day is normally hot & humid. A cool sea breeze often blows over our farm from the coast, and provides welcome relief. This cocktail is a play on the refreshing iced tea. The green tea cucumber garnish provides coolness, while the lemon juice provides a fresh tang. The perfect cocktail to relax with on a warm Christmas afternoon.
