Gin is a great for a hot day. It tastes fresh, bright, not too sharp, and doesn’t need a pile of sugary stuff added to make it good. I love a simple gin and tonic with a twist of lime on a hot day but there are so many other great gin cocktails out there. The Southside Cocktail is a classic and the house cocktail at the “21” Club in New York. It will work well with most any gin, but I wouldn’t recommend using a fancy expensive one since the mint and lemon will cover the subtle flavors of a finer gin.
