Starting off with the play station, as with all the ingredients being prepared, what you need to do is the girls will teach you on all the mixer and at the end whoola.

A clever mix, as the mixer topped with fresh passion fruit to bring the sour note and hint of sweetness up. Definitely girls would love it as it is easy to drink.

Tasting beings with 4 bottles of it and my personal favourite would be Auchentoshan – Three Wood. Love it as it is easy to drink, suits to my own personal palate. Highly recommended.
