This Wine and Gin Cocktail is a Cocktail Hybrid Dreams Are Made Of! [Recipe]

Hendricks gin

I am OBSESSED with G&Ts! If there was ever a ‘trend’ that I have embraced and welcomed whole heartily it is the resurgence of the classic G&T. Better still, bars and restaurants are now taking it one step further with signature Gin and Tonic menus each one designed to complement the flavours of the gin in the perfect way. Of course, no one does unique pairings like Hendrick’s Gin so when we were offered the opportunity to develop a signature WomenStuff gin cocktail with Hendrick’s we jumped at the chance! The result is this unique wine and gin hybrid that will completely change the way you think about gin cocktails. With a dash of white wine, a splash of cucumber juice, and a tot of freshly brewed iced tea, this Belle Santé cocktail is all about embracing beauty, health, and good times.
