Glüh Gin: A Cup of Holiday Cheer

Topping holiday gift guides from leading publications like Real Simple, Epicurious, Midwest Living and Splash, KOVAL Gin is officially the must-have gift of 2017! To celebrate, we're featuring a festive new cocktail recipe that's perfect for holiday entertaining. 

A variation on the classic glüwein, Glüh Gin starts with a big batch of mulled apple cider, flavored with lemons, ginger, cinnamon, clove and star anise. Simply serve it over KOVAL Dry Gin and toast to the holidays!
