Summer Gin

Abigail Diaz

First, let me start by saying that a gin & tonic is one of my favorite cocktails. Before I started in the spirits industry my go-to gin was Bombay Sapphire and then I graduated to Hendricks. Jump to today and I am fortunate enough to work for a company that has not only one of the best gin's in the market (no lie), but also happens to be my favorite. The Botanist is the perfect gin with a fabulous balance of Juiper, sweet herbs and beautiful aromas. Okay, so back to the post at hand, I am so happy to see The Botanist featured in this month's LOCAL Houston magazine with two recipes from BCN. If you haven't been to BCN, you are seriously missing out. But not only is the whole experience at BCN amazing, their gin & tonics are on point. Below I have copied one of featured cocktails with the lavender syrup recipe. I also included a basic Botanist & Tonic recipe for you to enjoy at home. Cheers to the weekend and cheers to you!
