Bit on the side cocktail

We have loved watching Rylan on Eurovision: You Decide these past two years (only partially because he seemed to agree with everything WE were thinking!), and thought he was a great co-commentator with Scott Mills during the semi-finals. Has Rylan considered representing the United Kingdom one day – maybe in collab with JOWST? We’d love to see that!

The ‘Bit on the Side’ is like your regular mojito, but with a bit of extra apple sass on the side.
