So I made a fruit salad today – I started with a lime then tossed it with some gin and tonic.
This recipe is my kinda fruit-salad-Friday! Most Fridays for me start with a fruit salad and end with one too ;) I am lucky enough to have free reign of my sisters garden that is bursting with a particularly beautiful berry called a Lilly Pilly or Brush Cherry. They're stunning pink in colour and just so happen to work really well in cocktails.
They taste slightly sour and a tinge tart but really compliment the gin and add a little crunch to your cocktail. If you are unable to find these little gems, then by all means substitute with raspberries for colour (however this will change the taste quite considerably but naturally give it a berry buzz). If you are looking to substitute as close to the flavour as possible, then thinly slice some pink lady apples – you will get that tartness and crunch that is a much closer match.
