La Paloma - Mexico's favorite Tequila Cocktail
Traditionally a blend of Tequila, lime juice, grapefruit flavored soda - this quite refreshing serve exists only to be riffed and twisted - and so I did
Having all the grains grown onsite, today's Gin is quite a number. Adding junipers, fresh quince, orris root, cinnamon, licorice, citrus peels, angelica and coriander, this gin have all the right ingredients for a "true classic"
Being a almost leafy experience, with the classical underlying tones in the back palate, I knew this would do well in a Tonic serve - but I felt it would do even better building a cocktail with it - so down this familiar road I went
Paired with a equally "leafy" whisky, out of the Lowlands, bringing apples, pears and grapes to the palate, this pairing danced remarkably well in my wee take on a Paloma
Topped with a new refreshing Tonic, the Aromatic Light version, suited for dry gins and sips, this was a no-brainer really, complimenting the notes and aromas of the spirits - like a true Tonic should
Don't forget your minerals tho - @aquaactae actae made sure you don't - consisting of bio-available Minerals and B vitamins, this mix helps reduce the damaging effects of alcohol consumption - always sip responsible my friends

Our final member of the Bloomsbury Set is...
British author and psychoanalyst. He is the younger sibling of Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell. One of the seven, he was described as ‘unwanted’ being the last child born, however it was later remarked that he was ‘spoiled, overprotected & inhibited.’ He had a romantic affair with painter Duncan Grant. And later married Karin Costelloe, a philosophy graduate, with whom he had two daughters.
He was a pacifist in the First World War but became so angered by the Nazi’s brutality & anti-semitism, he volunteered & became an army psychoanalyst at the age of 57 in the Second World War. He died 3 years after the war in 1948. #BloomsburySet 📸: @lateef.photography

Thankyou for an amazing bank holiday weekend
Love Hexham ❤️
Take a 10 minute mental break at 10 or 2 to sip an herbal tea and drift away for a bit. You're more likely to have a breakthrough to any problem that's frustrating you! No tea bags? No problem! Tea diffusers are a great way to have loose leaf tea on the go!
ORANGE CRUSH ALERT: 🧡 This past weekend I tried @troupis_winery Hoof & Lur skin contact Moschofilero, spontaneous yeast fermented, unfiltered. This wine is amazing! There are beautiful floral notes that scream white, yellow flowers and citrus blossom. There’s also a wonderful delicate citrus component as well. I think it reminds me of tangerine. This wine is well balanced with a medium finish. I bought this for under $30 @courtliquors this is a great buy! 🧡
