Take a sip of Sydney Summertime, our tea cocktail to celebrate the festive spirit down under.
The start of the Sydney summer coincides with the festive season, and the glorious vibe during those relaxed summer months is really quite unbeatable. Everyone is in the mood to celebrate so conversation is light and laughs come easy. It's a time for barefoot dinner parties, backyard barbecues and beachside picnics.
Inspired by the festive spirit, our friends at Teatini have created a tea cocktail aptly named, Sydney Summertime. A twist on the Gin Fizz, this cocktail is perfect for sipping throughout those long lingering days under the Australian sun.
