nolet's gin cocktail

During the fall, drinkers often turn to spirits like whiskey and rum. And for good reason–they’re warming, delicious and pair nicely with fall ingredients like cinnamon and that third slice of pumpkin pie. But don’t sleep on gin. With a crisp botanical backbone, gin carries flavors very well, whether you’re mixing up summer fizzes or something for autumn.

Below, we’ve got a couple of gin cocktails that incorporate the flavors of the season, including apples and anise. Check below for the recipes.

2 oz Nolet’s Silver Dry Gin

In a shaker, add all liquid ingredients, except the soda, and shake hard with ice. Strain into the prepared glass and top with soda. Garnish with star anise and fennel fronds.
