Sample text

Start with good gin and good vermouth and the drink nearly makes itself. Happily, that’s not at all hard to do. Liquor store shelves are crowded with an embarrassment of excellent gins these days. You can think of gin as basically a flavored vodka. The smell and taste of juniper berries is almost always front and center, but since a decent gin is infused with a dozen or more spices and botanicals—often including fennel, licorice, angelica root, and cassia bark—distillers have plenty of room to define their gin by the choice of which flavors to emphasize.
