There’s a time at the end of each work day, usually between 4-6pm, where I make myself a cocktail and unwind. No emails, no phone calls, no worries. I consider it my “special time,” while others simply know it as happy hour.

And, because there is no better way to unwind than with a few close friends, I invite them over to try a few of my favorite gin recipes.

Top Seagram's Gin Cocktail Recipes

My Top Seagram’s Gin Recipes

I was excited to join Seagram’s Gin campaign, because I’ve yet to try their twisted gin flavors and have been eager to make some drinks with them. The warm weather we’re having in LA made me think of raspberries and other delicious fruits, so I picked up a bottle of Seagram’s Raspberry Twisted Gin and started searching their cocktail catalogue. They have numerous recipes that would work great for days relaxing at home with friends, especially by the pool.

Grab your friends and try any or all three of these Seagram’s Gin recipes:
