I think this might be one of the prettiest drinks I’ve made in a while. It’s got a few sprigs of thyme, some sugar and lime and a good helping of gin to round things out. Speaking of gin, Aaron and I stocked up our liquor cabinet with a few staples and along the way picked up some of that new fangled Breuckelen Gin. We’re both suckers for a) Brooklyn-made goods and b) beautiful packaging which this bottle of booze has. We were delightfully surprised to taste how delicious it is! It’s not super heavy on the juniper (which I prefer) and it has nice citrus notes too. Yum! Cheers! To the start of a new year and many good things to come!
