My boyfriend and I are big gin fans, and so when Pepprell Distilling Company reached out, I jumped on the opportunity to collaborate. The brand is based out of Ontario however it also has East coast roots which I love (the distillery got its name from a street in Halifax where the owner lived while studying at Dalhousie University). While our go-to for gin is usually a simple gin and tonic, I thought it would be fun to throw together a holiday inspired cocktail for the occasion. This pomegranate gin cocktail is a great way to incorporate the festive flavours and colours of the season without too much headaches (and by headaches I mean the labour-related kind, not the hang-over kind).
