Staying in this New Year’s Eve? You can still get the party going by mixing drinks at home. Nothing says classic glamour more than a gin-style stirred cocktail. I’m currently obsessed with Walter Collective Gin, a complex spirit produced in Oregon that’s not as harsh or diluted as other gins on the market. The juniper berries are sourced from Tuscany and have a mild, smooth flavor. Hints of cardamom and cassia add warmth while grapefruit provides brightness. Jen Rae, the bar manager at Portland’s Rue, uses Walter Collective to make a flirty rendition of a martini. The pale pink color is thanks to the addition of Bruto Americano, a bitter aperitif from local beloved distillery, St. George Spirits. Garnish with an olive and get ready to ring in 2018. Cheers!
