Winter is Coming

October 29, 2020

Winter is Coming felt like the perfect blend of a cocktail that is focused on the seasonal transition. Easy to enjoy with some warm weather remaining or fully settled into the winter vibe. This is a nice spin off of a traditional sour or smash, the St. Germaine adds that perfect amount of sweetness but also adding a little complexity. Winter is Coming is a very well balanced Shrubbie that will have you reminiscing about the previous seasons or looking forward to the next.
