New Product: Beefeater Summer Gin

With Memorial Day coming up this weekend, the unofficial start of summer is upon us. What better way to celebrate than with a new gin!?

Beefeater Summer Gin is the latest creation from master distiller Desmond Payne, and this lighter style gin is perfect for the warm weather season. In addition to the 9 natural botanicals used in the original Beefeater London Dry Gin, Beefeater Summer Gin features elderflower, black currant, and hibiscus. It’s simply delicious! Stephanie and I were lucky enough to sneak an early taste of the product back in March and it knocked our socks off!

Beefeater Summer Gin will be sponsoring Thursday Drink Night over at the Mixoloseum on Thursday, June 24th, so there are sure to be a bevy of new cocktail ideas to come, but there’s also something to be said for keeping it simple and letting this gin shine. For easy summer-sipping, it’s delightful when mixed with just Cranberry Juice and lime!

Beefeater Summer & Cranberry

1 part Beefeater Summer Edition Gin
3 parts cranberry Juice
Squeeze of fresh lime juice

Combine ingredients in a tall glass with ice. Garnish with lime wheel.

Serve a pitcher of that alongside some Blueberry Lemonade and you’ve got a festive red & blue look for Memorial Day!

Keep in mind, Beefeater Summer Gin is a limited edition product. It’s only available in 750ml and comes with a price tag of about $19. It will only be available in retail stores through the end of summer, so make sure to get your hands on some early and often! You won’t regret it!

Cheers!
