Did you know that a third of the world’s best-selling cocktails are gin-based? If you didn’t know then now you do and in case you’re looking for a new cocktail recipe, we have that part covered too!
Bently Heritage Estate Distillery in Minden, NV has created their one-of-a-kind cocktail aptly named “The French Connection.” Made with the Estate Distillery’s Award-Winning Juniper Grove Atrium Gin, Artisan Mixologist Lucas Huff, created this cocktail, which incorporates a series of unique flavors that harmonize beautifully.
On the front, you’re immediately faced with a bright floral note from the lavender based gin. As the cocktail progresses across the palate you begin to identify herbaceous bitter notes complimented by fresh tarragon. The lemon juice and orange and cognac of Grand Marnier round out the mix and you’re left with a clean finish. Perfect for enjoying on the deck under the June sun while connecting virtually with your loved ones.
