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.
