Signature Cocktail: The Blushing Louisa


In our first ever signature cocktail, our friend Tara at Lace and Grace blog designed us a delicious and refreshing cocktail; The Blushing Louisa. The cocktail was named in honor of McClintock Young's wife Louisa and is an original cocktail designed specifically for our Forager Gin. 

Makes 2 Drinks


  • 3 oz of McClintock Forager Gin
  • Juice of ½ ruby red grapefruit
  • ½ oz of elderflower liquor
  • ½ oz of agave nectar
  • 3 sprigs of rosemary-with needles removed from stem (save 1 sprig in its entirety for garnish)
  • 2/3 cup of sparkling water or tonic water
  • Ice


  1. Place all ingredients in shaker
  2. Softly shake (so your drink does not explode)
  3. Pour into your favorite prohibition era glass
  4. Garnish with a piece of rosemary spring and quarter wedge of grapefruit
  5. Enjoy!
