FT33 Shares a Gin Cocktail Recipe

A Salute to Strega in a glass

ft33 gin cocktail!

Like a true magician, a good bartender always has something special up her sleeve. Surprise winter dinner guests with an herbal lemon swig created just for DailyCandy by Lauren Festa, head bartender at FT33.

When it comes to liqueur, Festa favors the flavor of Strega, a blend of 70 herbs that pairs brilliantly with the juniper notes of gin.

Don’t just take her word for it — gather the girls for a night in. But first, do a few bicep curls: You’re going to be working that cocktail shaker most of the night.
