A cocktail layered with aphrodisiacs
This drink, invented by cocktail maven Kathy Casey was sent to us by Martin Miller’s Gin as a reminder why winter can be a perfect time for gin. We love this thyme and honey gin fizz cocktail’s layers of aphrodisiac flavors including honey and thyme. There are those throughout history who have also declared gin as among the beverage world’s most potent aphrodisiacs. With a lineup like this, we’d say the odds are in your favor for a successful night of romance sipping this fizz!
