pop up is designed for parents to relax while the young have a ball.

A Macadania Castle spokeswoman said the bar would be offering three different cocktails.

"We have the ink gin and tonic, including tonic and rosemary; the ink gin fizz, with and a pure cane gin with ginger.

"We loved the idea of partnering with Husk because it's a local brand that people really love, and when the kids are happy and the parents are happy, we all win."

Visitors will be able to pair the mixes with a tasting plate, a selection designed to go with the beverages, full with of fresh ingredients sourced from the region, she said.

"The tasting plate includes salami, shaved ham, olives, fetta, humus and oven roasted tomatoes," she said.
