The Swaying Stalk
The Swaying Stalk is a cocktail from Valerie @valcohol
featuring 1pt Citrus Infused Gin.
Here's what she said:
Brightening up this chilly day with a preview of the freshest cocktail hitting the blog tomorrow. This drink features Gin infused with Teroforma's newly launched 1pt Citrus blend (lemongrass, ginger, lemon verbana, Yerba Mate, and marigold petals), wildflower honey, blackberry, lemon, and soda.
1pt blends are a great natural option for adding complexity to your cocktails without watering them down. All of their flavor combinations are so creatively balanced. I'm looking forward to future experiments using the beautiful Master Kit with the other infusion blends; Mint, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Chili, Smoky, and Floral.
