Next Level Gin – Ginbrew

If you follow us on Instagram, you saw our quick video showing how easy it is to brew your own gin with the Original Ginbrew Kit!  All you need is a 750 ml bottle of vodka  – nothing fancy.  Open your kit, place your flavored botanical brew bag inside, pour your vodka, seal it up, and wait.  The great news is you don’t even have to wait too long.  In 4 to 7 days, your gin is ready.

Gin Brew Kit
Ginbrew Kit with Gravier St. blend.

Last night we were able to try it.  Once brewed it gives off an herby, floral note that explodes with your mixer.  We used the new Diet Coke Ginger Lime as our mixer, with a splash of St. Germaine liqueur.  A squeeze of lemon and lime complimented this drink perfectly.  This is not an ordinary gin drink!

Not Your Ordinary Gin Drink:
Ingredients:
– 2 shots of Ginbrew St. Gravier flavored gin
– 1/2 – 1 shot of St. Germain Liqueur (your preference)
– Diet Coke Ginger Lime
– Squeeze of Lime
– Squeeze of Lemon
– Ice
– Copper mug

Directions:
Fill your copper mug with ice, pour in your shots of gin, St. Germain, then fill the remainder of your cup with the Diet Coke Ginger Lime.  Squeeze in a wedge of lime and lemon.  Enjoy!

You can also add Ginbrew gin for a more flavorful Moscow Mule.  Both drinks are really great with Ginbrew gin!

This is also a great gift idea – package Ginbrew with copper mugs and a bottle of 750 ml bottle of vodka for an exciting, not run-of-the-mill gift.  It’s perfect for housewarmings, engagements, birthdays, or for that gin lover you know!  And if you want to be really fun, package it with this enormous copper mug that holds up to 1500 ml – you can even chill bottle of ginger beer in it for a great look:

Ringing in Summer

Look what I just got for my birthday!  I’ve been looking for a ring for a while, but have been having a hard time finding the perfect one.  Did I mention I have little fingers?  So, trying to find a bigger ring that looks right on my hands is difficult, to say the least.  This set of stackable rings by Lisa Leonard Designs turned out to be perfect for my hands and carries a special meaning, since its engraved with the names of each of my children too.
