The history of this drink dates back to the British occupancy of India. Soldiers were given quinine to fight malaria. The taste of the medicine on its own was not palatable so soldiers would commonly mix it with sugar, water, and some of their gin ration. The classic cocktail was born. A refreshing and light flavored drink, it's still one of the world's most common and popular cocktails.
At first glance this drink may not seem like a snow day sipper but trust us it is. The Irish whiskey flavor and clove aroma combine with fresh fruit juices to deliver a cocktail that will cure even the worst case of winter blues and frozen fingers.
