In April, earlier this year, I had the opportunity to fly to Hotel St. Cecilia in Austin Texas, to join five other incredible woman in a video and photoshoot for the Williams Sonoma Summer Catalogue. We spoke about our personal experiences as women in various facets of the hospitality industry. It was an incredible time of camaraderie and delicious moments.
For the occasion, I created a few cocktails. One, was developed to be made for a group of people, and served in such away that it may easily be spiritfree or spirited.
In a carafe: Carrot Juice, Orange Juice, Lemon Juice, and Fever-Tree Ginger Beer. Serve over Pineapple Ice Cubes and garnish with fresh thyme, carrot ribbons, and freshly grated cinnamon.
When serving, try adding a dash of Angostura bitters along with a touch of Ki No Bi Kyoto Dry Gin with some Junmai Sake. The botanicals in this Japanese gin, pair perfectly with the earthy and bright notes of the spiritfree base.
