Hendrick’s for Father’s Day+A Giveaway!

I did some cocktails for Mother’s Day, so why not Father’s Day? I was lucky enough to attend a Hendrick’s Voyage into the Unusual party a few weeks ago. This drink, The Family Tree, was by far my favorite! Since gin is a little more manly spirit, I thought it would be perfect to share with your Pop this weekend. But this isn’t your Grandpa’s gin. It’s infused with cucumber and rose, which makes for a super clean and refreshing sip. Plus, I really like the story behind Hendrick’s, it’s a family run business and each and very bottle is given sniffed, yes that’s right sniffed, to make sure the quality is just right.

    This is more of Dad’s favorite memory of me… but when I was younger, my Dad told me that for every week I picked out the backyard, I would get one penny. ONE PENNY! As a little kid, I thought “YESS! I’m going to make money today!!!!” Well, I spent just about the whole day picking weeds, and made a whopping five dollars. I was thrilled, and so was my dad…
