“I instantly thought of a watermelon and feta salad when I first tasted romeo’s gin X. There was something about the freshness of the salad that really inspired me. I also like the idea of using items we would find in our own fridge. I was really determined to use the feta cheese brine in this drink as it would add a lovely umami texture and feel to the drink. When added to the syrup, it truly aided in balancing the drink and creating this excellent length in the finish.” –Adaina Smyth
