Spring always makes me want to drink floral cocktails with delicate flavors and flower garnishes - this drink matches that profile perfectly. The Absinthe makes the cocktail opalescent - a mesmerizing introduction into spring.
Blackberry Sage Gin Smash with Candied Sage Leaves is a deliciously fresh cocktail that really brings out the floral notes in the gin. If you are a gin girl (or boy!) like me, you can’t skip this one.
There is something so crisp and delicious about a classic Gin & Tonic and this little twist takes this classic to an entirely new level. It’s like the best flavors of summer decided to get together and have a pool party…but the pool is gin…and it’s amazing.
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.
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.
First created in the Prohibition era, the Last Word's simple recipe of equal parts Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Green Chartreuse, Junipero Gin and fresh lime juice belies the subtlety of this sweet-tart-herbal creation. Two men are credited with this cocktail's fame - its creator, vaudevillian Fred Fogarty, who allegedly first combined the four ingredients at the Detroit Athletic Club in 1921, and Seattle bartender Murray Stetson, who revived the Last Word at the Zig Zag Café in the early 2000s.
As the name Gin and Juice would suggest, this simple cocktail only contains two ingredients. No multi-step process here, just mix, enjoy and stay "laid back...sippin on gin and juice".
The Bee's Knees is a Prohibition era cocktail whose namesake was a popular phrase meaning "the best". Essentially it is a gin sour with honey but, because of the exchange of flavors between the ingredients it becomes much more than its components. The combination of jasmine and honey is as old as the hills and the jasmine flower botanicals used in Fords Gin ensure this cocktail sings.
