Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - BFG

February 27, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There!

February is coming to a close but we are not done celebrating and sharing black owned brands. Today, we're sharing an original creation made with Ode to Babel Gin. Ode to Babel is Black Owned/Women Owned Cocktail Bar in Brooklyn. A friend gifted us with a bottle of their in-house gin, distilled with locally grown botanicals and we paired it with blackberries and fig. We also used Black Owned Hella Ginger Bitters. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
