Gin and Tonic Tasting Event

Wednesday, September 21
Gin and Tonic and Spanish Tapas
5:30 – 7:30 pm

Join us at The Flavor Studio and try four delicious Gins from around the world, each paired with our selelction of fruit and tonic.
Who knew that different styles of Gin pair with different syles of tonic? And the fruit and botanicals...Is it grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange, blueberries? Only zest, or also a squeeze? Botanicals and herbs? Which ones? The answer is, yes, it makes a difference! The pairing needs to be right.

Gin and Tonic is wildly popular in Europe, especially Spain and nothern Europe. Spanish tapas pair well with G & T's, so we are serving Potatas Bravas (crispy potatoes with a spicy aioli) and Iberico Ham.
