Cocktail of the Week - Citrus Gin Spritzer

Well, the forecast is a calling for another “bomb cyclone” weather event,

but we’re planning for spring cocktails anyway!

Fortunately there is gin, the sole glimmer in this darkness.
Do you feel the golden, copper-coloured light it kindles in you? I like walking through the city of an evening in the warmth of gin.
— Albert Camus
