Spirit of Pogo can be enjoyed on it’s own over ice after a meal, or is even better served as an Old Fashioned cocktail.
A recommended recipe is with maple syrup, orange peel and a few drops of Angostura Bitters (you could use sugar syrup and your choice of bitters...)
It’s also good simply served over ice, with light tonic and a wedge of orange.
