Sprig & Berries

Empirical Dry Gin

The fall long drink PERFECTED! A Caleb original that showcases one of our favorite seasonal additions – Cranberries! At its core a simple gin and soda long drink, this cocktail has been punched up for the fall season with tart cherry juice, cranberry cocktail, and fresh lime juice. As a fall sipper it’s bringing it all to the table – fresh citrus, cranberry, tart cherry juice and a big bold Navy Strength Gin with the PostModern Spirits Empirical Dry Gin.
