TASTES LIKE: ZESTY CITRUS WITH WARM CINNAMON AND HERBS.
Abstinence Cape Citrus brings together the abundant citrus of South Africa with native botanicals including Buchu, an herb that has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties. The result is flavors of lemon, orange and grapefruit combined with warming cinnamon and savory fennel with a hint of black pepper. This isn't a gin-alternative per se, but you can substitute it for gin in many cocktails.
Delicious with tonic or combined with Abstinence Blood Orange Bittersweet Aperitif for a Negroni-like mocktail.
