Got Gin?

One of the biggest surprises at the 2009 Park City Food & Wine Classic for me wasn't a new wine discovery. It was a new Gin discovery. --- It's called New Amsterdam Gin and it's made in New York City (which was called New Amsterdam before it became New York).

Now, I'm no Gin expert. But I loved New Amsterdam straight, with a good chill on it. It would also be great on the rocks. The New Amsterdam motto is, "So smooth you can drink it straight." Well, that's certainly true. New Amsterdam is crafted with botanicals and citrus elements, resulting in a Gin with light hints of juniper and almost sweet orange peel notes.

New Amsterdam Gin is the perfect summer sipper, and I plan to be sipping plenty of it on the patio this summer. I especially like the price: It's currently on sale here for $10.99.%uFFFD
