If you're looking for the ultimate easy-sipping summer cocktail, this is the one for you. Essentially "summer in a glass", this drink is visually stunning, refreshing and pairs incredibly well with a sunny day.
Muddle basil and grapes thoroughly to break up the grapes and release the basil notes
Add vodka and gingerale then stir.
Serve over ice or up as a martini.
Large basil leaf for garnish, if desired.
Earl Grey & Blackberry Julep
We've doubled down on the derby day classic julep by using a home infused bourbon and adding fresh berries for a tangy kick. The unique combination of sweet bourbon and strong tea flavors create a drink that will keep you racing back for refills.
The classic Gimlet is typically served with gin although more and more people are ordering a Vodka Gimlet as the flavor is a bit more smooth. If you're a fan of making vodka drinks like this at home we suggest storing your vodka in the freezer to keep it primed for mixing.
Many claim to be the creators of this young-at-heart staple (all with slightly differing ingredient lists), but this version is the real deal. And while the name of this classic cocktail is misleading, very few actually liken the taste to a real iced tea. One thing we know for sure is that this cocktail has certainly made a name for itself outside of Long Island.
