We’re embracing ultra romance this month for The Proposal Issue. This week’s cocktail comes from Perth city venue The Reveley. Their perfectly pink drink is an ode to kisses, roses and the sweetest things in life – elements that certainly would help move the perfect proposal right along! Give into the love (and pink gin) and whip up a few to toast your, (fingers crossed) impending nuptials.

Not for nothing, we think The Reveley would make wonderful engagement party spot. Their South Side Alfresco room captures that leafy, indoor/outdoor vibe for up to 60 people sipping cocktails in your honour. Or enjoy stellar city, park and riverside views upon Henry’s Rooftop Bar when you reserve it all for yourself (and 140 of your nearest and dearest).
