We’ve teamed up with award-winning South African mixologist, Owen O’Reilly, to bring you Easter-inspired cocktails… or hoptails, as we’re calling them.
Owen holds the title of South Africa Bartender of the Year 2019 after representing the country as a finalist at the global World Class competition in Glasgow with contestants from 54 other countries.
Enjoy shaking up his custom-made hoptails – we guarantee you’ll be a happy bunny.
