Don't be deceived by its mauve hue. Instead of flooding with a sweet surge of fruit, this tipple is an appealingly crisp one. "The initial flavor profile is berry-driven, but the fresh-squeezed lemon juice, along with the tartness of fresh raspberries, complement the floralcharacter of the Nolet's gin and result in a bone dry cocktail," says Mitankin.
Sipping one of these, summer's imminent decline just doesn't seem possible.
