Did anyone else feel like this week was never-ending? Anyone? Well, the good news is that it’s Friday, the better news is that this incredibly productive and non-stop week called for a strong and simple gin drink. So here ya go. We took advantage of the mix of fresh fruit and garden mint we had at home and decided to use our "Pâte de Fruit" versus the oil to really “dress up” a classic gin and tonic.
We wanted to stick with flavors we offer for our CBD confections when choosing ingredients to compliment the gin. With our raspberry flavored confection we paired the gin with fresh raspberries and rosemary. A surprising yet pleasant pairing (My personal favorite of the two.) We also offer a blueberry confection and since our garden is being overrun by our mint plants we choice to do a little weeding and stir the fresh herb, along with some blueberries, in our second gin cocktail.
Voi lâ! Simple, fresh deliciousness.
