Anything else I should know?
Like all good things in life this cocktail was created by chance and circumstance at a 50th birthday party with friends in Perthshire, Scotland at the end of May. One balmy warm Spring evening, we needed a celebratory drink for the birthday girl, Catriona. With the basic ingredients of Lime Vodka Liqueur, Seville Orange Gin and Ginger Wine to hand, the Citrus Sundowner Cocktail was born, AKA Catriona's Citrus Sundowner. This is a delightful drink that is so fresh it will make you feel young again...well almost!
