Gin before Noon
Who says you can't have a drink before noon? Brunch on a Sunday sounds like the perfect time. Plus, with something bubbly and fruity, its perfect for an early sipper. This Grapefruit Gin recipe is simple and fresh. Who has time to gather 10 different ingredients? I like to get straight to the point and let the spirits do most the talking.
1 Shot of Floral Gin (Bouck Bros)
1 splash of mint syrup
1/2 squeezed lemon
top off with your favorite grapefruit sparkling water
Bonus Tip: try a new flavored spritz - mix up for a seasonal taste!
With a recent exploratory trip to Idaho Springs, I stumbled upon a local distillery - Bouck Brothers Distillery. They had a few tasty whiskey classics but their Pink Bear Gin stole the show. Their botanical recipe includes juniper berries, hibiscus flower, cinnamon, coriander, and rosemary. Its a subtle and junipery gin, but gets its color and special flavor from real hibiscus flowers!
