Jupiters Moon from The Spiritualist


35ml of Apple Juice

25ml of Whitley Neill Parma Gin

12.5ml of Violet Liqueur

25ml of Fresh Lime Juice


Add the apple and fresh lime juice to the base of a highball glass with cubed ice and fill with Butterfly blue tea crushed ice.

After this, fill the glass with Parma Gin, Violet Liqueur and top with soda, dehydrated lime, mint leaves and garnish with a raspberry.

This drink requires no shaking or mixing - just fill and enjoy!

‘Miss Moskito’ from Moskito bar


35ml Whitley Neill Blood Orange

25ml Fresh Lemon Juice

3-5 drops of Foumee

5ml St Germaine - Elder Flower liqueur

(Optional 50ml Apple Juice)


This drink is known to be a ‘dry and wet’ cocktail which means you are going to dry and wet shake this drink.

Put a spring into your shaker as this will help emulsify the cocktail. Add 3-5 drops of Foumee into the shaker (this is also known as an alternative for egg whites normally used for sour drinks.)

Add Blood Orange and St Germaine after, for a little bit of sweetness. Add in lemon juice to your taste - depending on how strong you would like it, and give it a good mix.

Once you have your blended mixture, fill the shaker with ice as this will now act as your ‘wet’ shake and shake well again.

(You can add Apple juice into this step at this point if you prefer.)

Ice up your summer sipper glass and pour the blended mixture in using a sieve and garnish with a dehydrated lemon .
