With autumn comes the change of season and weather. The time is right for change is in the air. Try something different this season. Take a class. Learn a new language. Get a gym membership. Whatever you do, try turning your standard normal upside down to see the world differently, including what you eat and drink. Take the Ginspiration. Turn the traditional Mint Julep on its head by reinventing the cocktail altogether to make the Ginspiration. Made with refreshing gin as a replacement for the whiskey, the Ginspiration features maraschino liquer, giving it a crisp, almond flavor that really brings out hints of the harvest season.
- 2 oz gin
- ¼ oz maraschino liqueur
- ½ oz lemon juice
- ¾ oz mint simple syrup
Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice. Shake. Strain into a cocktail glass with fresh ice sprayed with absinthe. Garnish with fresh lemon peel and star anise.
