Being part of Hix seasonality is really important – ingredients from the UK. Apricots are in season – we are playing with sorbets and purees. We added the vanilla to add another flavour dimensions. We wanted a nice long refreshing drink for cocktails in the city summer. Freya and Pechaud’s seem to match really well. The Mediterranean Tonic worked perfectly after playing with a variety of lengtheners.
