Bermuda Shorts

An ever-changing collection of random thoughts from my mid-Atlantic island. Grab a seat and stay awhile. It's fun over here.

06/04/20The Time for Gin is Now

COVID. Rioting. Social injustice. I think it’s safe to say that we all need a stiff drink at the moment. For me, it’s a Negroni made with Pink House Gin, Bermuda’s newest spirit distilled with island-inspired botanicals including hibiscus, mint and blood orange. Thirsty for more? Then read all about it in my latest story for Travel+Leisure. Called Island Special, it features four creative cocktails served in four of Bermuda’s finest bars and restaurants (like Barracuda, where master mixologist Ryan Gibbons invented the Cardinal’s Clutch, a spin on a classic cocktail known as the French 75 with Pink House Gin, poppy cordial, fresh lime juice, Peychaud’s bitters and splash of Champagne). As versatile as it is delicious, the rose-colored gin is one of my new faves from the Bermuda Gin Company and can be purchased locally at Miles Market. Cheers!
