Gin plays a role in many of the best cocktails for its robust flavor. In addition to juniper notes, other botanical flavors give this spirit a profile perfect for pairing in refreshing spring drinks.
These spring gin cocktails incorporate fresh ingredients, many of which become available as the weather warms. Whether you prefer fruit notes or herbal elements, you’ll find something you love on this list.
From new creations to spring-themed takes on classic cocktails, these drinks provide the perfect accompaniment for any occasion. While these drinks make me think of spring, they’re great for enjoying during the rest of the year too.
Though this recipe requires more steps than most, I think it’s well worth the effort.
First, you’ll need to infuse cardamom into your favorite gin, which takes 24 hours. The recipe also calls for a rosemary syrup, which, combined with grapefruit juice, creates an herbaceous base to mix with the spicy gin.
Top with prosecco and serve with a citrus garnish.
