This cocktail was inspired by WSET Spirits Educator, Hannah Lanfear. In October last year, our staff completed WSET Spirits Level 2, the first time the course had been run in Australia.
Hannah, who flew over from the UK to teach the course, talked a lot about cocktails that highlighted the spirits used, rather than hiding them with other flavours. When Hannah came across a spirit or cocktail that she got excited about, she would say it gave her ‘Fizzy Knickers’, hence the name of this cocktail!
