How to Make the Gin Fix (The Craft Cocktail)

I like this kind of nuance where they make craft or classic cocktails. You can never go wrong with the old school flavor. Salud and salute!

2 oz London Dry Gin
1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Rich Simple Syrup
Garnish: Orange Slice

French Vanilla Ciroc Coquito (Non-Dairy version)

If you haven't already heard of the latest flavor, you can check this commercial of Diddy and French Montana. This is pretty chill because I do drink non-dairy things from time to time. I'm glad they were able to try it a few times to get the right mix. Def looks pretty tasty, and I would honestly try/make both versions just to have it for people that prefer milk or non-dairy.

Recipe (non-dairy)
1.5oz French Vanilla Ciroc
1.5oz Coconut-Almond Milk
.5oz Coconut Cream
A Dab of Vanilla Extract
Top With Cinnamon (Serve Over a Full Glass of Ice)
