I don’t know about you guys, but for we Sydney folks it’s been a bloody DAY. Personally, I plan to deal with it by locking myself inside and making fabulous cocktails.

So it’s perfect timing that gin experts Bombay Sapphire just released a new special edition ‘Sunset’ gin, which throws golden turmeric, Indian white cardamom, and Spanish mandarin into the mix. They’ve also shared three cocktail recipes and, frankly, any excuse will do.

Honestly, catch me making Negronis all weekend — because if we can’t go out to party we may as well bring the party to ourselves, right? If you’re lucky enough to be in a state not currently directly dealing with Covid, please make these for all your friends and poor some out for the rest of us. No, I’m fine, really.

If that’s still not enough to get you through, here’s 16 more. You’re welcome.
