Cocktail of the Week: Southwest Side

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.”
