Carpe Diem cocktail with Wattleseed Gin

This cocktail is robust in spices and aromas and can be enjoyed by serious cocktail lovers and anyone with a bit of fire in their belly. The chocolatey hazelnut flavour of the wattleseed is complex but compatible with the nuances of this Dry Ginger Ale. Then the oils in the orange rind with the smoked cinnamon stick puts the whole drink into a whole new depth.
