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.
Juice Watermelon. Combine ingredients except for
soda water. Ice, shake well and strain over fresh ice
into a long glass. Top with soda water. Garnish with
a lemon wheel and an basil leaf.
I hope you enjoy this cocktail as much as I did!
Plus, the great people at Hendrick’s gifted me a shaker and lime juicer that I’m giving away to one of you lucky readers! Tell me your favorite memory with Dad in the comments below and I’ll pick a winner at random tomorrow at 5pm! This is a quick giveaway so respond away!
