When we named them among our 2019 Foodies of the Year, distillers Jason and Alayne MacIsaac of Sooke’s excellent Sheringham Distillery were kind enough to share this recipe for a gin-based cocktail that’s going to blow your after-work G&T out of the water.

If now is not the time to level up your home bartending game, when is?
