And pour your spirit first, then your mixer, THEN your ice. Otherwise you’re going to dilute that delicate baby spirit, and with no booze, you can’t afford to do that!
Lilly Pilly Pink is the first non-alcoholic spirit offering from Manly Spirits who have been making a range of alcoholic spirits in Sydney’s north since 2015. This is a blend of 12 distilled botanicals including some lovely natives with some additional flavourings and thickeners to give it a bit more volume (I assume).
On the nose you get a beautiful zesty, fruity aroma, with raspberry, blood orange and juniper all featuring. When mixed with a good tonic, the flavours really come alive. There is bitterness from the juniper, dry from the Lilly Pilly and a lovely citrus finish. You get a sweetness but it is subtle and not cloying and really well balanced overall. There is a slight peppery finish there that I do love. Its beautiful, botanical, complex and very moreish!
