Gin is a fascinating liquor, for sure. We like to think of it as that 3am friendreliable and always there when you need it. It’s what Christmas in a bottle would look like, but for the summers. This #WorldGinDay, take a moment to appreciate the goodness of these crisp gin drinks, ideal for the sultry summer afternoons (assuming that you’re into this glorious sport called day drinking) and your poolside parties. We recommend pairing these cocktails with Beefeater’s London Dry Gin, probably the best thing to come out of Britain, after Benedict Cumberbatch.
