Jameson Short Shift Ft. Dion Agius

Jameson Short Shift Ft. Dion Agius

Dion is a pro-surfer, co-owner of Epokhe eyewear and all round legend. He takes on our latest short shift from Tasmania where he has been spending time with his mate and well known surf photographer, Jon Respondek. Dion tells us all about what he's been doing to keep busy and makes us his signature Jamo cocktail, the 'Hot Johnny'.

The 'Hot Johnny' is one of the most rustic Jamo cocktails to date which Dion makes as a tribute to his mate Jon. He combines honey, cinnamon, fresh cloves and tea with his preferred drop of choice, Jameson caskmates stout before warming on an open camp fire.

How to make your own pot of 'Hot Johnny'

When it comes to staying busy, Dion mentions that the past 6 months have been a rare opportunity for him to spend quality time at home. He has enjoyed getting some work done on the house, pottering around in the garden and trying his hand at building things, most notably a new veggie garden and path.

Of course, he has also spent plenty of time in the water and has enjoyed getting away from it all on a couple of camping trips.

“We've done a couple of camping trips which was fun and a bunch of surfing. So yeah, isolation in Tassie was actually pretty sweet. ”
