I can easily trace back the time line of my alcohol consumption ...

1995-1999, High School: Jello shots (I could get drunk off of one)

1999-2003, College: Beer at frat parties then I "upgraded" to Boones Farms (how classy of me)

2003-2004, Post college year of spending graduation money: Apple martinis and cosmos (damn you Sex and the City)

2005-2007, It was all about the gin: Gin and Tonics was my only friend.

2007-present, Vodka: It tastes better with soda, which has few calories.

BUT we are talking about gin right now!

I remember the first time I was introduced to Hendrick's. I was in a martini bar in West Hollywood and I asked the bartender to shake me up a cucumber martini. When he told me they don't make that, I wanted to splash my drink in his face. Until I realized I had no drink to splash. The bartender quickly redeemed himself by telling me about a gin that tasted like cucumber (it was Hendricks). So I said "Ok, sure ... I will give it a try."

I can't say I remember how the gin tasted that night. But I do remember that I had a great time.

Flash to a few months later when a bottle of Hendricks arrived at my door (isn't shipping wonderful) and I was ready to give this gin a second try.


Not only is this gin delicious, it tastes like on other gin I have ever laid lips on. I also love the website because it has tons of interesting cocktail ideas.

What did you think of this review?
