What better way to do this than with some homemade syrup using fresh ingredients? Making your own syrups at home is easy and it is a great way to personalize your cocktails with any flavor combination you can dream up. Ginny has been making quite a few different flavors lately and brings two different ones to this week’s show. With her Rosemary Mint syrup they make a Gin Mojito and with her Mandarin Orange syrup they make a drink they eventually call Ginny’s Crush.  Different, refreshing and perfect for the change in seasons, join us for the latest episode!
