Three Creative Holiday Cocktails Made With Levenswater Spring 34 Gin

Get ready for it: Back-to-back holiday festivities are about to begin. If you’re hosting a holiday soiree yourself, you want to make sure that your guests don’t leave for the next best option, and that your party will be remembered well into the New Year. That’s where creative cocktails come into play…

To start, opt for a spirit with a strong backstory as an instant conversation starter. This season, I’ve discovered the new Ontario-crafted Levenswater Spring 34 Gin; not only does it have a completely unique look, it has a unique, modern flavour that’s refreshingly unlike anything on the market. The small-batch, premium gin was perfected in Toronto and made locally in Niagara with 34 botanicals. The lightly rose-tinted gin (!) is inspired by the complexity of fine wine and offers a layered and sensory drinking experience. Toronto’s colourful Kensington Market also offered inspiration behind the spirit, and its bold flavours and variety of botanicals used represent the neighbourhood’s diversity.

This brand-new product won seven International awards in its first year of production – a major talking point – in addition to having an award-winning bottle design that’s as noteworthy as the gin is. The smooth gin is easy to sip on its own and also great mixed in a cocktail.

Aside from the crowd-pleasing cocktails, when it comes to host and hostess gifts or the dad who has everything, Levenswater Spring 34 Gin makes for a talking point-filled gift that goes beyond the typical. The unique and elegant bottle has a freeform design that showcases the rose-colour of the gin, inviting the flow of light, colour, and reflection.
