With such an abundance of great products being produced locally, why not celebrate by supporting those that are nearest and dearest!
Refreshing and low in alcohol so wedding guests can last the distance, nothing beats a Vermouth Cobbler. The team at Henry Sugar in North Fitzroy has spruced theirs up with a little house-made elderflower syrup (it’s been in abundance this year ) – and why not add some cucumber too.
For those that like their drinks a little stronger, why not add a splash of local Yarra Valley gin, Four Pillars, or for something a little different, try Melbourne Moonshine’s sour-mash moonshine, made in South Melbourne.
60ml Maidenii Dry Vermouth
20ml elderflower cordial
Squeeze of half a lime
Sliced cucumber and mint leaves
In a tumbler, mix the vermouth and elderflower cordial together; add a squeeze of lime and top with soda water. Garnish with sliced cucumber and mint.
To dial it up a bit, add half a shot of gin or moonshine!
