Drink #3: The Constant War

Today’s cocktail is inspired by the story of the vine weed planet. It was originally going to be a simple gin and tonic, with a load of thyme whacked on top. However this ended up a bit gimmicky. Please don’t forget this tip though. A big heap of thyme on a G&T will reveal a whole new side to a classic.

Instead The Constant War deconstructs this story. It’s a refreshing drink for a warm Spring afternoon, with green fruity flavours all the way through. Be warned. Deep within that greenery is a bitter sting.
