I learned about the Spice Tree from East Coast Brand Ambassador for English Gins (Beefeater and Plymouth), Nick Van Tiel. Earlier this year he stopped by the SHAPE offices to give us the low-down on gin and we’ve been huge fans ever since. This drink is spicy and has a very masculine feel so, if the French martini just didn’t do it for you or your man, give the Spice Tree a try. Another three-ingredient cocktail, the Spice Tree is super-easy to make yet the sprig of rosemary really makes it feel special. To make in larger quantities just keep the ratio of ingredients the same. At less than 90 calories you may want to make a few for yourself—and your guests!
