Self isolation Vantage style… we can still enjoy some beautiful cocktails right? If you’re lucky enough to live near some wild blackberry bushes it’s a great excuse for a walk in the fresh air to pick some for this beautiful Vantage Blackberry Bramble cocktail. Actually, buying them from your local greengrocer is also a great option (if it’s possible) - it supports small businesses that will be doing it tough over the coming months and keeps you away from the crowds.
And what about the Vantage? If you can’t get to the store, you can order your Vantage online at Dan Murphy and it will be delivered safely to your door. Winning.
