A perfect pairing of two kindred spirits. The nose of the drink is decidedly juniper, while the flavor is a delicate melding of the one-of-a-kind Esprit de June vine flower liqueur—yes, that’s a spirit made from the tiny white flowers of grapevines—and woodland pine notes from the gin.

Sloshies 2D NEW

Simple Syrup recipe from Sloshies
• 1 1/2 cups pure cane sugar
• 1 1/2 cups boiling water

Yield • 2 1/4 cups (18 ounces) simple syrup

1) Place water and pure can sugar in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil
2) Reduce heat to a simmer and stir the mixture, letting the sugar dissolve until the liquid looks uniform, without any visible granules from the sugar, about 3 minutes
3) Remove from the heat and let the syrup cool. Use immediately or store in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks

Mint Simple Syrup from Sloshies
• 5 tablespoons dried mint (or 15 tablespoons fresh mint)
• 16 ounces simple syrup

1) Place simple syrup in a saucepan over medium heat
2) Add the dried mint and heat for 12 minutes (if using fresh mint, heat only for 6 minutes). You aren’t looking for a change in the appearance of the syrup, but taste it after 12 minutes have elapsed; if it tastes like your flavor it’s good to go. If for some reason it doesn’t taste like mint, leave it on a bit longer.
3) Strain out the mint with a fine-mesh strainer, then let the syrup cool. Place it in a sealed container and store it in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Cherry-Infused Old Overholt Rye Whiskey from Sloshies
1) Place 1 dark, sweet cherry (frozen works really well) per ounce of Old Overholt Rye Whiskey in a tightly sealed container
2) Store in a cool, dark place for at least 72 hours, then strain out the cherries to use as garnish, if desired.
