THE STORY BEHIND THE COCKTAIL NAME
This drink is a toast to the power of the Australian environment in its burning and bouncing back during summer time bushfire season experienced every year. With the unique smell of burning eucalyptus accentuated by the strong peaty notes of Laphroaig and levelled out with the light citrus elements of Australian Lemon Myrtle and Eucalyptus and a gentle nutty sweetness from native wattle seed, just like bushfire season itself: served hot and flaming with smoke in the air.
