Today's MermaidMary cocktail is The Strawberry Sipper - a cocktail where the only straw is a berry!
This is because the team at Pernod Ricard believe that small acts have a big impact & have decided to stop using non-biodegradable plastic straws and stirrers in any part of its business, globally. Wow!
A straw which is only used on average for 20 minutes can take more than 200 years to breakdown into smaller pieces and may never fully disintegrate.
THE STRAWBERRY SIPPER
50ml Chivas Regal 12 Year Old
20ml Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
10ml Strawberry Syrup
50 ml Ginger Ale
50 ml Soda Water
Build all ingredients in a glass over ice. Garnish with a fresh strawberry.
