Hippy Fizz at Home


Porter’s, the light and refreshing modern classic gin have canned one of its most-loved recipes for at-home delivery, and we are whooping. The Hippy Fizz cocktail has been expertly pre-batched into individual servings ready to be enjoyed at home, or picnics, BBQs, or gifting to that mate you want to zoom with.


The rich, herbaceous highball has a tropical base thanks to a combination of pineapple shrub and malted passionfruit which blends seamlessly with the elevated citrus of Porter’s Gin and a herbal note of patchouli. Once chilled, the cocktail is ready to drink - either straight from the can or, for a perfect serve, over ice in a highball glass.

Price: £4 per unit, £34 for 12

ABV: 5.7%
