Lilith's Kiss - Drink Recipe


We are pretty stoked to find out that Animus Distillery have just announced their latest release - Davidsonia Gin. And they took the time to create a brand new wizz bang unbelievably gorgeous new cocktail just for Lost Magazine and you guys - our readers! It's grown up, gorgeous and
full of sass. Just like you.

Belvedere Social will be hosting a daily aperitivo during the Swiss Italian Festa, from 4-6pm, with Salvatore Rossano (piano accordion) and Emiliano Beltzer (guitar) playing Southern Italian songs from 4.30pm on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October.

We steeped whole Davidsonia plums in our award-winning overproofed Macedon Dry Gin for almost 18 months to create our latest offering.

Davidsonia Gin is delicious neat as a sipping gin on ice or with a squeeze of lime, or beautifully refreshing with fresh lime and soda, or in a range of innovative cocktails like “Lilith’s Kiss”. 


75ml Animus Distillery Davidsonia Gin

10ml Yellow Chartreuse

15ml DOM Bénédictine

a generous dash of Angostura Bitters

5ml Belsazar Red Vermouth

1 maraschino cherry

Orange zest


Combine all ingredients in a cocktail mixing glass

Add large blocks of ice, stir for 40 revolutions

Apply martini mister spray of vermouth and delicately place maraschino cherry into the centre of a martini glass

Strain directly over maraschino cherry to release and lightly blend the syrup into the poured liquid.

Garnish with a fenestrated helix of orange zest, take a sip and sing Happy Birthday.
