Rosemary Gin Fizz Cocktail

 

 

Rosemary, lemon juice and egg whites band together to make this refreshing summer drink (along with a little help from their friends, gin and seltzer). Making the rosemary simple syrup takes a little extra work, but trust us, it’s worth it.

Hurricane

 

In a classic tale of supply and demand, the hurricane drink was born from a whisky shortage that followed WWII. Though there was a shortage of whisky, rum was plentiful. This forced New Orleans bartenders to get creative, and the hurricane was born! With the addition of grenadine, this take on the hurricane is especially sweet and yummy.
