Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing with this special drink created by our cocktail specialist, Lee Noble. "Moonwalk Revival" was inspired by the "Moonwalk" cocktail created by the Savoy in London, in a diplomatic gesture, for the enjoyment of the Apollo 11 crew upon their return. The original was very simple: grapefruit juice, orange liqueur, champagne, and rosewater.
In this version, Tamworth Garden Gin and AITA Black Trumpet Blueberry Cordial are used to strengthen the drink in an ode to the ‘Aviation’ cocktail, because without aviation we never would have gone to space. AITA Ginger Quince is added for a touch of sweetness and spice, in lieu of orange liqueur. Pineapple is included because pineapple and grapefruit juice was part of in ‘Meal A’, which the astronauts shared in space.
