Waterloo, featuring James River Distillery

We name all of our drinks after places in Virginia, ‘Waterloo’ just seemed to fit! 🙂 I made the Watermelon shrub with Lindera Farms Honey vinegar, after tasting it I knew it would pair well with gin and something bitter. The classic London Dry style Continental Gin adds nice botanicals without overwhelming the watermelon.

1.5 oz. Continental Gin
.25 oz. Campari
1 oz. Watermelon/Honey Vinegar Shrub

In mixing tins, add Gin, Campari and shrub, plus one scoop ice. Shake, Pour into Collins, top with soda. Garnish with lime wheel.
