Cocktail Menu: Mikey Enright’s Warner’s Tonica, plus four other Warner’s cocktails

Barrelhouse Group Co-Founder Mikey Enright created nine flavours for Artisan’s range of premium tonics and mixers and also owns famous gin bar, The Barber Shop, so we thought we’d take this opportunity to share his recipe for a Warner’s Tonica.

With huge parts of the country in lockdown, it looks like it’s going to be a very different Father’s Day this year, so why not pick-up a Father’s Day special from your local bar and shake dad one of these delicious cocktails suggested by our friends at Warner’s Gin.
