Thanks to my good friend Chris, along with a good word from my blog buddy Rob, I am now a tremendous fan of Hendrick's Gin.
My history of gin pretty much starts with a bottle of Seagram's Extra Dry Gin that my across-the-hall-neighbor (and eventual best friend) Alex were bought our first day of freshman year of college. We neophytes decided the best way to rock it was to do shots - from what I remember, it tasted like burning...needless to say, I avoided the stuff for the most part, always coming back for a taste now and again.
However, thanks to some great advice from smart people, I'm enjoying gin once again. Despite the suggestion, I like my G&T with a twist of lime, as opposed to a cucumber slice, of which I'm not a fan.
Trust me, kids...if a self-avowed gin hater (one Mr. Joseph Fritsche) took one taste and couldn't order one fast enough, then this is something worthwhile for you to pick up at the liquor store.
