Featured Cocktail: G & Tea
I am just loving The London No. 1 Gin, not just for its gorgeous pale turquoise blue color (which looks stunning in a Martini), but also for its delicate notes of juniper, pine and ten other botanicals. I've had fun experimenting with cocktails that preserve its hue, but I'm also enjoying those that coax out its aromas and flavors. The G & Tea is a heady, feminine blend of elderflower,gin and intoxicating bergamot citrus from Earl Grey tea. I can see it being a staple on the patio this summer.
