What is Gin?
Gin is a distilled alcoholic beverage that is made with juniper berries, herbs and botanicals. Gin is once again gaining in popularity. It is famous for the making a simple gin & tonic, bees knees and martinis. It is a great mixed with apple cider in this simple fall drink.
What is the Best Gin for Cocktails?
We have tried several brands of gin but Highclere Castle is the smoothest and best tasting that we have sampled. It's the only one I would recommend drinking straight.
Highclere Castle is the famous setting for Downton Abbey and is home to the Carnarvon family. The Carnarvon’s worked in collaboration with England’s oldest gin distillery to produce an exceptionally smooth, luxury spirit that is worthy of Highclere’s history and pedigree.

Handy Tools for the Home Bar:
A Cocktail Shaker is a must have for those ice cold mixed drinks.
Cocktail Jigger is perfect for getting the perfect measurements for all of your favorite cocktails.
Microplane Twist & Zest is my favorite for juicing and making citrus garnishes for my favorite cocktails.
I just picked up this Ice Crusher - which is perfect for cocktails. Great if you don't have an ice maker that crushes ice in your fridge.
