When the temperature is high, my go-to wine is a Rosé every time. I popped into Dan Murphy’s at Galleria Morley to pursue their extensive selection of globally sourced rosé and came away with a gorgeous bottle from Hawkes Bay. Not only is it a lovely dry wine, but the bottle has the most gorgeous label with a very appropriate Tiger gracing it. Perfect in our Chinese year of the tiger. In keeping with current drink trends, I have taken the alcohol down a notch in this refreshing cocktail by adding lychee syrup and soda, so you can safely sip away while still being mindful of your intake. This cocktail is pretty as a picture with the addition of a lychee, fresh raspberries frozen into your ice blocks and pops of green from cucumber and mint.
