Feeling vaguely human again after night shift....so heading out this arvo with my #foodwife @goldcoastfoodie into my beloved SoGo (Southern Gold Coast) with plans to hit up a few places I haven’t been yet including @suga_goldcoast @rosellasbar and @oiizakaya for some dranks and delicious bites! In the spirit of Sunday seshing here’s a spritz I made yesterday after I discovered a cheeky bag of blood oranges at @woolworths_au .
.
2oz @hartshorndistillery Sheep Whey Gin
1oz Fresh Blood Orange Juice
1/4oz Vanilla Bean Infused Sugar Syrup
Soda Water
Add everything apart from the juice, then pour the juice over for a fancy effect.
If you don’t give a shit about a fancy effect then just combine all and slurp to your hearts content.
Simples 👍🏼

OLD FASHIONED FRIYAY: #oldfashionedfriyay
.
You guuuuuuys, I finally grew a pair and cracked open one of my bottles of Whiskey from America for this weeks OF-Friyay! I went for the @knobcreek Smoked Maple one. It was much sweeter than I expected with a lovely smokey taste. Unless you have a suuuuuper sweet tooth you need not add any more syrup to an old fashioned. This would also be tres easy to drink on le rocks! It was yum!
.
.
SMOKED MAPLE OLD FASHIONED:
2oz @knobcreek Smoked Maple Bourbon
2 Dash @angostura_au Aromatic Bitters
2 Dash @angostura_au Orange Bitters
Stir with ice
Double strain into an OF glass 
Garnish with a sprig of smoking rosemary.
Drink in front of a roaring fire in your best dinner jacket!
