Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.
Gin is an alcoholic spirit distilled from wheat or barley then infused with flavor from juniper berries and various other botanical ingredients.
Gin almost always has a strong aroma and taste of citrus because almost all gin is made using some kind of citrus peel. From there, other flavors like cardamom, coriander, juniper berries, and other botanicals are usually present.
Technically, gin will last forever. It will never “go bad”. However, opened gin will slowly change flavor over time. Old gin won’t taste very pleasant, but it won’t hurt you.
