“This cocktail is inspired by androgyny and rejects hegemonic gender notions in favour of creating a unique expression that would please any palate. Each disparate ingredient creates a complex layering of flavours that come together and find harmony. The savoury notes captivate the palate while the sweeter flavours tickle and refresh and the earthiness grounds the cocktail and makes it linger. The glowing golden hue is seductive and mesmerizing for anyone’s gaze. Intended to be an absolute crowd pleaser, this cocktail is an enchanting celebration of the nature of individuality and a declaration of the importance of acceptance. Cheers!” –Quinn Taylor
