Gin • Savory
Gin & Apricot Highball

Have you heard of the Pendennis Club cocktail? No? Neither had we, but once we tried the balanced blend of bright citrus, floral gin and jammy apricot, we were devoted drinkers. Every time we made the cocktail at home, however, there was something missing. We found that something in La Croix’s bright and honeyed apricot soda. This new and improved variation on the Pendennis Club features barrel-aged Old Tom gin, honey, cardamom and a topper of spritzy Apricot La Croix instead of the traditional apricot liqueur. This effervescent sipper is just as delicious mid-January as it is come high summer.
