This refreshing summer drink from the Lord Baltimore Hotel is made with Baltimore Spirits Company’s Shot Tower Gin. Perfect for sipping outdoors as the sun recedes–perhaps at the hotel’s rooftop Sky Bar following an afternoon at Artscape.The Lord Baltimore Skybar grows an array of herbs for use in their craft cocktails.

 

Ginning Up For Summer!

3 oz Shot Tower Gin

½-1 oz Herb-infused Honey*

½ oz Fresh Lime Juice

Club Soda

Fresh Herb Garnish

Fill 2 rock glasses with ice, add 1 ½ oz of Gin to each glass plus 2 teaspoons of syrup and 1 teaspoon lime juice, stir well and top with club soda. Garnish with a wedge of lime and sprig of herb.

*Make the herb-infused honey ahead of time by placing a tablespoon or so of herb leaves (basil, rosemary, sage, mint …) in a saucepan with ½ cup water and ½ cup honey. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes to a thin syrup consistency. Allow to cool a bit and pour into a jar or pitcher. Taste before using so you know the strength of your infusion.
