Gin cocktails at Figidini signal the coming of spring


If you’re like me, March makes you desperate to feel like spring has finally sprung… and in my opinion, nothing says warm weather like a good gin beverage. Well, lucky for me (and all you fine people like me), there’s Figidini’s Alpine Spring to help you emerge from the winter blues. Created by General Manager Kevin Toth and Bar Manager Katelyn Verissimo, the drink was inspired by the herbaceous spring flavors of Figidini’s kitchen. Toth yanked both bay and basil from the prep station to create his laurel bitters, which are key to the green, vegetable-like brightness of the cocktail. Mixed with a bit of the herbal liqueur Génépi Des Alpes and some fresh lemon and stirred to perfection, this cocktail tastes like warm times ahead.
