What do you do when a delightful craft gin is finished? Give the empty bottle new life with a home made gin infusion!
On an earlier trip to Canada, one of our whisky ladies brought back a bottle of Endeavour Gin from Liberty Distillery on Granville Island.
And when it was gone? It was much missed. And a replacement was needed.
Now here is the thing, your average gin in India is pretty standard stuff… best disguised in cocktails.
In this case, our whisky lady transformed a $5 bottle of local desi gin into a delightful infusion using fresh rosemary springs and grapefruit from the market.
The result? A highly refreshing aperitif!
It was a perfect start to our evening – equally as good just with a cube of ice as it was with a few splashes of tonic.
Much like our whisky evening with Karen Walker, starting with a gin coming straight from a hard day was an ideal transition from work mode to enjoyment mode.
