I would have a hard time picking out a favorite style of beer but I can state without hesitation that my favorite highball is a gin and tonic. Last night Barb and I sat on the backyard deck and we both sipped tall G&T's while watching the slowly fading twilight.
The heart of any G&T of course is the gin and at the core of last night's cocktails was Death's Door, an American-made gin distilled in Wisconsin. Despite its rather gimicky sounding name, Death's Door is a fine gin made from locally sourced organic barley and wheat and spiced with juniper, corriander and fennel.
This excellent gin retails at Siciliano's at $29.99 for a 750 ml bottle.
