Feeling fancy? Cheers to spring with this herbal and floral fizz! Use Sunset Hills Virginia Gin to give this cocktail an extra little oomph, or try our smooth Deep Run Virginia Vodka for a more neutral flavor. Citrusy, bright, and light, the lemon juice pairs spectacularly with the Chamomile-Riesling Reduction for a springtime floral flavor. Don’t worry if you’re not a tea drinker — the flavor is very subtle. If you’re looking for a mouthwatering cocktail, give this one a shake.
