Wednesday: Zero 2 tonic
Zero Zero 24. 0% alcohol, 100% flavour. Juniper berry, lavender, a dash of elderflower. A superior bouquet that opens up completely in combination with a sparkling partner such as tonic. The bitters take care of the perfect balance, where the sours of the grapefruit give it an extra bite. Flowery. Spicy. Summery. An instant vacation mood.
