For years, beers and dark spirits have been comrades in arms in the cocktail world, with gin left to fend for itself. But who says that the right beer and the right gin can’t be an even better combination? Certainly not us. With the idea of this little rebel alliance forming in our minds, our Jungle Juice emerged as just the gin we were looking for to go rogue with.

100ML WHEAT BEER
GARNISH: ORANGE PEEL
1. Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled highball glass.
2. Stir gently to combine.

ARMY AND NAVY
This classic cocktail first made an appearance in 1937, but a modified version made print a little over a decade later with a recipe that called for double the quantity of gin. Naturally we were big fans of that particular decision. There’s a delicious boozy and sour complexity to this simple recipe, designed with one thing in mind - to bring the best out in the gin.
