One great thing about a three day weekend is the short week that follows. With this said, Happy Hump Day, everyone! Amazing that we are at the ninth day of September already. For the way this week has gone so far, I will take let it fly by as fast as possible. Just can’t seem to fit everything in this week. Not a complaint; just reality. I may need this coming weekend to get back to normal.
I have introduced this cocktail before. I have to say that it is something you will have to try if you are a gin lover. The other ingredients of this that compliment this spirit help balance it, all the while giving you a drink that is not only a unique experience in taste, but also gives you an aroma that will take you to euphoric levels.
This cocktail originated at the Detroit Athletic Club in the 1920s. It was a big hit then and is starting to come back due to the craft cocktail craze that has been going strong for the last few years.
Now, this is a sipper and should be given it’s due by taking the time to enjoy every flavor this cocktail has to offer. A great name for this cocktail, since it makes a perfect evening ender. Look it as the icing on the cake, or a nice finish to a wonderful day.
Enjoy your Wednesday, everybody! Cheers!
