SGS’s Lorie Tetard’s creation is a case of curious by name, curious by nature. The mixologist explains her cocktail. ‘Never taking things for granted, I like to go out of my comfort zone and I am curious about a lot. Curio bay is a place in New Zealand where you can swim with dolphin, camp, learn history of the earth and look for penguin at night. It is not your classic outdoor day; it is not your classic cocktail. Kai means food in Maori and food is what brought me to learn about mixology.’
