Celebrate Australia Day With Four Pillars Gin and Mr Black

Jan 24th, 2017

This Thursday (26th January) is Australia Day.

History fact: it marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British ships at Port Jackson in New South Wales and the raising of the flag of Great Britain at Sydney Cove.

Now, as you know, we don’t need an excuse to have a drink at Love Drinks, but with two brands within our portfolio hailing from Australia, Four Pillars Gin and Mr Black Cold Press Coffee Liqueur, it seemed to make sense to share a serve or two to enjoy on the day.

You would have seen press coverage on the Turbo G&T or, as Mr Black likes to call it, a Coffee Collins, which they’ve been enjoying since 2012, so why not try it with Mr Black and Four Pillars Rare Dry?

Here’s what you need to do:

Combine gin, grapefruit juice, orange bitters and marmalade into a shaker.  Fill with a generous amount of ice. Shake vigorously for about five seconds.

Happy Australia Day everybody!
