With summer just around the bend comes the anticipation of those favorite summer fruits coming to fruition. All those vibrant and light flavors and colors are the perfect addition to any cocktail for sipping by the pool. Noting a gap in the premium gin aperitif section of the drink world, Pontoon Cocktails—a company that brings together ingredients from around the world to expertly blend them into high quality drinks—has devised a bright and crisp gin aperitif just in time for the warm weather.
The Wingfield—named for lawn tennis pioneer Major Walter Clopton Wingfield who is responsible for changing the face of summer in the 1870s—is said to taste like garden at dusk with its clean and fresh palate combines with an overall modern gin aperitif approach. Blended from cucumbers, pink grapefruit, sweet and bitter orange peels, elderflower, ginger, and spices, The Wingfield just screams summer drink. While its plentiful on the rocks, Pontoon highly suggests creating a spritzer garnished with an orange twist to pull out the zing of the citrus notes. The Wingfield is incredibly versatile and can be used in a slew of different drink; it’s really up to you! Each bottle will grant you an average of seven drinks so get ready to lounge, sip, and soak up some vitamin D.
