Cocktail: Red Snapper

Red Snapper

Nothing says 'brunch' like a fabulous boozy cocktail! Forego the Bloody Mary this weekend and opt for its ginnier (and so obviously much better) cousin, the Red Snapper. Bold, spicy and savoury, this Four Pillars Gin favourite can be made using Tabasco or homemade chilli sauce from the recipe below.
