This is a delightful, botanical refresher, made with matcha - finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea leaves. Brightened by the addition of lime and mint and spirited with gin.
Our simple take on a classic cocktail. We call ours the French KISS! The French 75 came about during World War I and was named after the French military's 75mm M1897 artillery gun.
This recipe comes to us from our friends who manage The Cocktail Artist blog. We met them at a Virginia Spirits event in Washington, DC. Inspired by the stunning Shenendoah Valley, they crafted their version of the classic "Side Car" with spirits from two Virginia distilleries: Catoctin Creek, Vitae Spirits Distillery.
Dida's Distillery crafted this "Virginia version" of a classic mule, replacing Ginger Beer with Navy Hill, our Ginger KISS, and a few dashes of bitters.
Who would think a Mojito would work with Brandy instead of Rum? Try this Virginia-inspired version. It's simple, refreshing, and AMAZING!
A KISS of cinnamon enhances the sweetness of roasted butternut squash. For a fall stunner, year-round, try it with sweet potatoes too!
