*GIN / SURPRISE ME | JULY | Pretty In Pink
Simple to make and easy to drink, this cocktail is refreshingly tangy, floral and a touch fruity. Top Shelf Gin’s floral properties are complimented with a few dashes of Top Shelf Blueberry Bitters. The gin’s aromatic notes are complemented with fresh raspberry flavours and a touch of citrus, the perfect fruit combination to pair with gin, more so Top Shelf gin, with its fresh grapefruit properties. A bit of lime flavour and some fresh lemon juice makes for a brightly flavoured thirst quencher. Sweetened with honey syrup instead of traditional simple syrup, the local Ontario honey brings forth a richer flavour and an earthy tone that ties the cocktail together. Pretty In Pink is an approachable cocktail that will fancy just about any palate.
