This is our contribution to shark week (our favourite week) we love all things nature as you can probably tell by the majority of our cocktails. But we don’t just love the cute animals of nature we also have a special love for the scary apex predators. Like all shark movies there will be blood in the water and this cocktail is no exception, we include our own blood red rosemary syrup.
