Strawberry Gin Smash

Here’s what puts the “happy” in Happy Hour! It’s a completely refreshing way to welcome guests. Be sure to seek out Ohio brands of gin, such as Watershed Distillery where the classic juniper notes are subdued. If you’re new to mixology, “muddle” simply means to press or pin the ingredients against the side of glass with the back of a spoon. This releases the flavors of the ingredients to bind with the spirits.

Ohio’s wine industry was built on sweet wines from varietals like Niagara, Concord and Catawba and although winemakers are introducing more European-style dry wines, Ohioans still love their sweet wines. This sugary little white wine is 100 percent Niagara and labeled and named after Edith, the last of 130 dairy cows to be sold from Maize Valley’s dairy herd. (The proceeds were used to start up the winery.) Sips of sweet red wines are wonderful with chocolate desserts.
