The Faux Friends cocktail menu is a playful nod to the linguistic phenomenon known as “false friends,” where words in different languages may appear similar but have entirely different meanings. In a similar vein, the cocktails on this menu may have seemingly familiar ingredients, but each cocktail showcases a unique combination of ingredients that may look or sound familiar, but have distinct flavour profiles that come together to create a delicious and harmonious drink.
By exploring the unexpected combinations of ingredients in the Faux Friends cocktails, You'll experience the pleasure of discovering new flavour profiles and expanding your palate.

They are designed to be enjoyed in a tall glass filled with ice, making them the perfect choice for a hot summer day or a casual get-together with friends.
