Friday is almost here here. And it’s Spring in Australia. And together that’s just one exciting combination. And nothing screams ‘Friday drink in Spring’ like a fizzy cocktail based on gin (it’s refreshing in the heat you see). And particularly when it’s topped with flowers…

And thanks to the clever folks behind Australia’s latest rooftop offering, The Rooftop Garden Bar, that’s nestled atop Brisbane’s iconic Stock Exchange Hotel, we’ve got just the recipe.

Enter their pear and elderflower gin fizz. It’s a sweet yet sour, refreshing mix, that’s perfect to make up when the week’s at an end, and the weather a little balmy.
