NOLET’S® Silver Gin Puts the Happy Into Your Home Happy Hour

NOLET’S Silver Gin is inspired by over 325 years of family distilling tradition and the expertise of the Nolet family, who also created Ketel One® Vodka. It was created by 11th generation sons Carl Nolet, Jr. and Bob Nolet in collaboration with their father, Carolus Nolet, Sr., 10th generation owner of Nolet Distillery.

NOLET’S Silver has been Rated 98 Points and the #1 World’s Best Gin three years in a row by Cigar & Spirits magazine. And it’s easy to see why. The signature botanicals of Turkish rose, peach, and raspberry produce a floral and fruit-forward gin, one that is sure to become a mainstay of your at-home bar cart. When it comes to hosting a gathering at home, whether it’s a few friends after work, or a backyard BBQ on the weekend, cocktail hour can become a bit routine if you do the same thing week after week. NOLET’S Silver has six excellent suggestions for shaking up your cocktail hour.

Mix up your flavor profiles.

Wake up your taste buds by mixing complementary flavors in your cocktails, like the NOLET’S Silver Peach Lemonade. The sour-spike of the lemonade is tempered by the sweetness of fresh peaches.

Find beautiful glassware.

Dressing up the bar is sure to refresh cocktail time. Replace plain glasses with a beautiful vintage set, or better yet find elegant new barware to update your entertaining space. Just be ready to fend off all the compliments from your friends.

Experiment with garnishes.

Uncommon garnishes, like fresh berries or herbs, can do wonders for perking up a tired cocktail. Try the NOLET’S Silver Basil Smash, which uses fresh basil to enhance the aromatic qualities of the drink.

Have fun freezing.

Try freezing various edible items into ice cubes for a signature drink. Fruit and edible flowers both make a gorgeous statement suspended in ice. For example, freeze lavender sprigs into ice cubes for a NOLET’S Silver Lavender Gin + Tonic.

Go around the world.

Host a theme party by setting up stations with different exotic cocktails and snacks, each representing a specific country. If you have multiple rooms available, you can even include a playlist that matches the international theme in each space.

Expand your horizons.

If you're making the same few drinks every time you have people over, no wonder you're bored of the same old routine. Shake up the schedule by making a cocktail you've never heard of, such as the NOLET’S Silver Dutch 75.
