Out of Africa

We’re back with another Sister Sips. It’s been sunny and hot here in Connecticut, so we’ve been making a classic Gin drink, The Out Of Africa. It pairs well with a sunny day in the backyard!

Picture a sunny afternoon, where the world slows down to the lazy hum of cicadas and the gentle sway of hammocks. In this idyllic scene, a Gin and Tonic becomes the embodiment of summer itself—crystal-clear and cool, like a dip in a mountain stream. The gin, infused with botanical secrets, frolics with the tonic water, creating a refreshing symphony of bubbles. Ice cubes clink merrily, keeping the concoction perfectly chilled as laughter floats on the warm breeze. A sprig of fresh mint nestles against the glass, releasing its fragrant whispers of herbaceous delight.
