Tart, sweet, woody
Bizarre Love Triangle is a luscious and tropical take on a Manhattan, just in time for summer. It’s a simple, three ingredient cocktail, with each component working harmoniously together. Irish whiskey is mixed with a nigori umeshu, providing complex flavours of tart yellow plum and almond, which is balanced by a sweetened honeybush tea, chosen for its exotic woody notes.
