Shopping for spirits is much more fun while sipping on spirits. Tomorrow and Thursday, Edible teams up with eight liquor shops throughout Brooklyn for a Hendrick’s Gin Tasting. Below, find the Hendrick’s gin cocktail recipe that Ayana Suknanan from Lulu and Po will be mixing up for the tasting at Gnarly Vines Wines and Spirits.

The Carlton:

Hendrick’s gin is infused with juniper, Bulgarian rose and cucumber for a unique flavor. It is made in small batches of 450 litres, which gives the distiller great control of the quality of the product.

1.5 oz Hendricks gin
1.5 oz Dolin dry vermouth
A couple dashes simple syrup
A couple dashes The Bitter Truth orange bitters
A couple dashes St George absinthe

Stir and serve up with a lemon twist

To sample this cocktail, head to Gnarly Vines at 350 Myrtle Avenue tomorrow or Thursday. Still thirsty? Find out where you can sample Hendrick’s throughout Long Island and Manhattan over the next few weeks.
