Another Monday, another day in lockdown. Yesterday we honored our mothers, who were our inspiration for today's drink. Our Moon Dew is our twist on the Moonwalk. No, we're not talking about Michael Jackson's famous dance move. The original Moonwalk cocktail was invented in 1969, by Joe Gilmore, head barman of the Savoy Hotel's American Bar, to commemorate the first moon landing. Gilmore said in an interview, “The Savoy sent it off in a flask and I received a letter back from Neil Armstrong thanking us and saying it was the first drink they had when they came out of quarantine.” Fortunately for us, we don't have to wait for the end of quarantine to sip on this. We hope you enjoy. As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
