With a couple of fromer professional bartenders on the team - one of them an award-winning mixologist - it's no surprise that The West Winds Gin have designed their spirits not only to taste great on their own, but also to work really well in cocktails.
The Southwest Side - named in honour of The West Wind Gin's home in Margaret River at the southwestern tip of Australia - is a deliciously simple recipe that echoes the maritime spirit of The Sabre. As the team says: “We live in the beach culture so it is only natural we add a little bit of salt, which lifts the whole drink.”
60ml The West Winds Sabre Gin
15ml lemon juice
15ml lime juice
15ml sugar syrup
Pinch of salt
10 mint leaves - slapped!
Stir all together in a cocktail tin and pour into a tall glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.
