Bring a taste of summer to your place with Soul Bar’s scrumptious My Seanna cocktail recipe

Here in Auckland, we might not be able to pop out for a tipple to see this week on its merry way, but that needn’t stop us from trying our hand at some at-home mixology. While nothing will ever beat being there in person, Soul Bar and Bistro’s My Seanna cocktail has us counting down the days until summer with its swoon-worthy combination of vodka, Aperol, watermelon, cucumber and mint, with a citrusy burst of lemon and lime.
