The Gentle Mother Cocktail
Crafted by Chef Paul Lillakas
Spiked Chamomile Mint Iced Tea with Grapefruit and Ginger
The Gentle Mother is a great listener and will sit calmly on the porch swing. She’s giving away free smiles while sipping on soothing iced tea. Just being around her is relaxing and when asked what her secret is, she’ll wink and tell you there’s a little vodka in her tea. 😉 The Gentle Mother is a drink that plays with the traditional flavours of sleepytime tea, relaxing and soothing, but woken up with a lively splash of Zirkova Together Vodka, a slice of fragrant ginger and bright pink grapefruit juice.
