End of Summer Cocktail: Yes Way, Rośe!

Gin. Strawberry-lemon shrub. Rośe. Bitters. Looking at it, it doesn’t seem like much. Four ingredients. But it’s delightfully pink, packs a wallop, and is deliciously light which basically means it’s the perfect end of summer cocktail.

He’s headed off to the Preakness (happening on May 21), and if he wins there as well I’m sure the country will be gripped in Triple Crown fever, much as we were last year with American Pharoah
