Gin & Juice

The Gin & Juice is anything but a drink that a bar is famous for. He never had that claim. That doesn’t change the fact that he’s a brilliant highball, especially in the summer of course. But it is not only an uncomplicated freshener, it also “can” provide quality. He even wants to! We used our own grapes, freshly squeezed.
