Summer Lover Vodka Gimlet

Riffing on the traditional recipe, the Summer Lover vodka gimlet utilizes Sweetgrass Vodka distilled in Spartanburg and distributed from Charleston. With a stunning color juxtaposition, this gimlet features an earthy vanilla chai syrup, sweet coconut extract, and a chai-dipped lime wheel for a tropical, spice-forward cocktail.
