THE STORY BEHIND THE COCKTAIL NAME

After being offered some mulberries from a friend recently, I reminisced about a childhood home that neighboured a VERY large mulberry tree bordering our back yard. I was filled with memories of climbing the bordering fence and directly into this Mulberry tree, ready for an after-school feast. My sibling and I would gorge ourselves on the rich, dark berries for hours until our feet, fingers, faces and clothes where stained. As the sun went down, we would retreat back to the house to watch the daily migration of fruit bats crossing the sky and slowly take our places in the mulberry tree to ravage its delicious fruit some more. It’s through this drink, that I’ve tried to capture this moment in time.
