78 Degree Sunset Gin

Looking for a gift to give your better half who is always keen to try something new? 78 Degrees Sunset Gin boasts fresh red berries with subtle hints of pine and eucalyptus. A unique taste with a botanical hint to add depth and complexity to this summer gin. With such a flavoursome body, this gin needs little effort when it comes to mixers. Available at Dan Murphy’s for RRP $79.99

Adelaide Hills Distillery 78 Degrees Sunset Gin 700mL

Nexba Tonic

This premium range of tonic waters creates an ultimate mixer for a special drink like the Sunset Gin. Unlike most other tonic waters which contain almost as much sugar as a can of Coke, Nexba is 100% sugar free and artificial free with just 9 calories per bottle. Finally, we can enjoy a classic G&T without the guilt. The waters come in incredible flavours including Classic, Lime and Cucumber, Mint, Cranberry and Hibiscus. RRP is $6.80 for a 4 pack – Available at Coles and Woolworths nationwide.

Disaronno Amoretto cocktail


For those looking to spoil their significant other with a home cooked meal, why not go the extra mile with a beautiful cocktail? Amaretto Sours are easy to make and make an incredible starter to any romantic evening. Simply add a shot of Disaronno, half a shot of lemon juice, half a shot of egg whites and a dash of bitters. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a cherry and serve in an old fashioned glass. I’m loving the new limited edition Disaronno Wears Trussardi bottle. Inspired by Milan’s fashion and strong Italian taste. Available at Dan Murphy’s and leading alcohol retailers, $46.99 RRP.
