Try these delicious spring cocktails and raise a toast to friends, family and better days.

Dirty Donga Martini


60ml Flowstone Bushwillow Gin


2-3 skewered pimento olives, to taste

Truffle-oil mister, to finish



Add your gin and vermouth to taste before stirring over ice and decanting into your martini glass, add olives for the iconic finish. Then mist the top of the cocktail with just one or two fine sprays of truffle oil.

The Greyhound


60ml Flowstone Marula Gin

120ml grapefruit juice

1 tsp simple syrup



Add 3-4 ice cubes to a cocktail shaker. Pour gin, grapefruit juice, and (optionally) 1 teaspoon of simple syrup into the shaker and shake well.

If you want your Greyhound Cocktail without ice, which is the classic method, pour it into a martini or cocktail glass and serve. If you prefer ice, pour over a small glass half-filled with ice.

The Gimlet


70ml Wild Cucumber gin

50ml lime juice, freshly squeezed

50ml simple syrup

Lime wheel



Add the gin, lime juice and simple syrup to a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass or a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a lime wheel.

Pair it with your favourite meal, Serve and enjoy!

Sustainably hand harvested, with evocative names including African butterfly bush (Buddleja salviifolia), blinkblaar-wag-'n-bietjie (Ziziphus mucronata), iNhliziyonkhulu (Dombeya rotundifolia), and raasblaar (Combretum zeyheri) among others, they make Flowstone Gins the perfect choice for a spring heritage cocktail.
