This week, Spirited Women will be meeting at the Westside Tavern, Thursday, August 18th, at 6pm for a wonderful tasting led by English Gins Connoisseur, Silamith Weir, who I had the pleasure of meeting at a gin breakfast recently. Kylee Van Dillen will be our fabulous bartender.

I know there are gin lovers and gin haters, and I have to admit I was part of the latter group…people who would scrunch up their face and say, “No way!” Just the smell reminded me of hair tonic. But, I have seen the light. The first step was having gin in a sublime cocktail. Everything became clear…the gin added nuance and complexity and deliciousness. Then I tasted a variety of gins, straight – the best way to really get the flavor of any spirit – and was instantly mad at myself for shunning gin for so long. Have you ever had a Ramos Gin Fizz? That’s a gin drink I think you can get behind.

For gin lovers, this will be a real treat.

Silamith will be leading a tasting of 3 gins and then will also host us to a round of cocktails. After that, you’re on your own…for more cocktails, that is.

There’s room for 10, so, if you can make it, please let me know asap. And, yes, you can pass this on to friends who might be interested…just RSVP to judi@boozenews.com

Can’t wait to see you! ~ Judi
