Garden Party Sour

A refreshing potion that would most likely be centerstage at the Mad Hatter’s tea party. Brilliant and bright, the freshness of basil is reminiscent of being amidst the flourishing blooms of a grand botanical garden. Overall, this silky sipper is a friendly means to discover the complex botanicals found within gin.
