Let’s hear it for World Gin Day!! Every now and then a foodie holiday calls out to me. How can I pass up  a wonderful holiday that is celebrated all over the world? A couple of friends and I have decided to throw a gin party and you are all invited! #WorldGinDay

This is the 9th annual world gin day, and the intent of the organizers was to get people around the world to join together to celebrate gin. My first thought when deciding on a cocktail to create was which gin do I use for this cocktail recipe? There are hundreds of brands of gin…which would make this beverage special?

(*I was provided liquor for this post by Drizly.com. All delicious gushings are my own.)

The stars of this drink are the fresh in-season juicy strawberries, and this delicious gin by Brooklyn. I have made cocktails with gin before, but the honey liquor was something new for me. Have you tried this Celtic Honey liquor? The flavors blend so well together with the strawberry and ginger.

I used a ginger sugar mix on the rim of these glasses. I bought at a local spice shop in Sacramento, but you can easily make your own. This flavored sugar tutorial makes it seem so easy!

Gin

Gin is a liquor that is derived from juniper berries. Gin became popular in England because the government allowed unlicensed gin production. The government also taxed any foreign liquors heavily, making the gin market boom. Gin can be flavored with a lot of different botanicals including anise, licorice, cinnamon, coriander, and lots of other spices.

Honey Liquor

Honey liquor is gaining in popularity for its sweetness. I used Celtic Honey in my cocktail recipe because it blends in with the gin so well. You can also make your own, there are tons of tutorials online to make honey liquor.

This recipe is so easy to make. All you need to do is toss all of the ingredients into a Vitamix or blender. I love using my Vitamix to make cocktails.
