PLACES WE WILL BE
& dates we celebrate
There are a few theories of the origins of this classic cocktail, our favourite being it was named after a party guest called Harvey who banged his head against a wall when suffering a hangover from the drink. Well, there's no need to follow in this eponymous fellow's footsteps, but we do find there is always a time and a place for a well made Harvey Wallbanger.
Sober October in 2020 should perhaps be renamed Sober-ish October. At Shrub HQ we feel this is not the year to be overly strict on yourself; at the same time, if you've been in the "it's Friday night every night of the week" groove, it could probably do with being tempered somewhat.
Brandy, an oft overlooked spirit, which we think a shame. Often stunning on its own, it is more than adept at being the heart and soul of a great cocktail. The Sidecar - need we say more?
We love Rum Punch Day. They can come in many shapes and sizes; the key is getting the balance right. A blend of 2 of our shrubs with 3 different rums hits all the right notes. Transport yourself to a Caribbean idyll.
Who doesn't love a good Negroni, and here comes an opportunity for a whole week of them.
