Local Gin Bar Cocktails: Let The Evening BeGIN

Few things go so perfectly with summertime entertaining than a cool Gin and Tonic. The traditional G&T is always a huge hit with guests at any special event and it is one of the easier drinks to make, especially in the Nation’s Capital. Resources are abundant in Washington DC, with several outstanding distilleries and lush local gardens where garnishes can grow.

This summer, we’re taking libations up a level by giving this classic cocktail an ingredient makeover. Utilizing locally sourced garnishes and gins, we’ve concocted the following summertime variations on the old school Gin and Tonic. Although the ingredients may vary, each is guaranteed to leave guests revelling in refreshment!

  • Green Hat Gin‘s Classic Gin
  • Original Tonic
  • Fresh Lime Juice
  • Fresh Ginger
