As we move out of winter and into the warmer spring and summer months, we are delighted to share with you two brand new cocktails, perfect for the brighter days ahead.
One of these cocktails is from the Isle of Barra Distillery, which produces the delicious Rhubarb and Heather Gin Liqueur, using rhubarb sourced from a local charitable organisation on the island.

Pour all the ingredients into a stemmed
wine glass. Add cubed ice. Garnish with
an orange wheel.

The second of these refreshing cocktails is from Wild Eve, a company which produces
innovative, small batch non-alcoholic drinks, which are hand-crafted from an exclusive selection of organic flowers, fruits, leaves, and seaweeds, foraged on the Isle of Harris, in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
The carefully blended botanicals assist to reduce stress, alleviate anxiety, and invite calm through the innate properties of the plants.
