Cocktail of the Week: Root to Fruit

National Gardening Week starts today, and what better way to kick off this celebration of green growing and botanical bounties than with a drink that's practically made for the occasion? Tap into the spirit of nature with April's KONGSGAARD GIN with this gorgeous cocktail!

Root to Fruit

Just as KONGSGAARD GIN is inspired by the tree from root to tip, so too is this cocktail. With Rondó bitters serving as a base, build up to the blossoms of lemon and grapefruit in this ingenious drink.
