My good friends know that a Negroni is my go-to-cocktail! If you know my brand, you know that I love me some boozy soap AND that my recipes are crafted from artisan food & drink. It only made sense to develop two different gin soaps that celebrate the rich aroma in their ingredients. This week I'm taking some time to celebrate gin, reflect on my past travels, and share some of my favorite gin brands with all of you!
Traveling In Portugal
While traveling abroad through Lisbon, I was absolutely amazed by how frequent and easy it was to enjoy a Gin + Tonic. You could get them at parks, strolling down the street, etc. - they treated them like little drink or hotdog stands that you see in NYC! One of my favorite stops along the way was a spot called Park Bar, which was a gorgeous little bar on top of a parking garage. While they don't have a website, they are amongst the top travel recommendations for Lisbon. Check it out here! You can find some of my other recommendations at my 2016 blog post: Lisbon Travel Guide
My Gin Recommendations
I personally love St. George - their range of gins are the perfect amount of sweet & herbal. But I also am a big fan of Slo Gin (if you've ever come across it) - made from the Slo Berry, it's tart, sweet, with an amazing texture to it as well. But, if you're looking to try new brands that aren't found on your regular Gin shelf at the market, I sugget browsing the Gin collection at Bitters & Bottles or The Epicurean Trader!
