AFLOAT PINK GIN DRINKS

Spicy Margaritas are out, spicy gin Margaritas are in.

As is tradition, our favourite floating bar, Afloat Melbourne have picked a new summer theme and Cam has created a new (pink!) gin that’ll transport you there with just one sip. This time we’ve taken inspo from the bold and vibrant Mexico, so we’ve looked to botanicals like finger lime, habanero chilli, Mexican oregano and a dash of agave nectar.

Whip up a super fresh G&T with a wedge of lime or try our take on a spicy pineapple Margarita.
