This playful pink blend is inspired by the wilderness of the Shetland Islands, where only the hardiest arctic botanicals can grow. In these northern reaches, the Northern Lights – called Merry Dancers in local legend – aren’t an un-common sight through the wild nights of winter. Garnish this tasty libation with a sprig of icy mint and a wheel of grapefruit and enjoy whilst bundled up by the fire.
