We have been so lucky to get to partner with Bethany from Flower & Fig on all of our Party for Her kits so when we knew she was designing the menu for the Make Her Happy kit, we couldn’t wait to see the stunning cheese board that she would come up with. Pair it with a delicious cocktail (or mocktail if you prefer) from our friends at Dram Apothecary and you have the perfect happy hour made!
The Silver Queen Gin Cocktail
*Makes 1 drink
– 1 1/2 oz. good Gin, we suggest Hendricks for it’s floral quality or CapRock
– 1/2 oz. DRAM Pine Syrup, or similar
– 1/2 oz. Leopold’s 3 Pins Alpine Herbal Liqueur
– 1 1/2 oz. fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
– 5 shakes DRAM Citrus Medica Bitters, or similar
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker over ice and shake well. Strain into a fresh glass. If making into a punch simply incorporate all of the ingredients in a punchbowl, stir well and refrigerate until ready to serve. It is best to fine strain the grapefruit juice for a punch.
