Attica’s Wattle Fizz

Get in the mood for a springtime house party with this spring-inspired cocktail.

Inspired by the sudden blooming of wattle flowers around Melbourne in late winter and early spring, this take on a Mimosa (literally meaning wattle flower in Italian), brings the usual fun fizzy element to this cocktail with a new floral twist.
