As the weather heats up you may want to grab an ice cold drink. If a whiskey doesn’t sound refreshing, consider opening up your pallet to gin. Gin is a distilled spirit made with Juniper berries. It tastes clean and dry. It has a medicinal flavor. Gin is cool, sophisticated, and refreshing.There are many ways to enjoy gin, even if you don’t like tonic. Gin also pairs well with citrus, mint, and cucumber. Invest in a good bottle and try a few different gin cocktails. A Tom Collins on a hot day is very refreshing, its like an alcoholic lemon soda. A gimlet is another refreshing drink. But if you to be like Bond, have a Martini.
