This weeks signature cocktail comes from the brilliant mind of Jeff Naylor, Winner of Frederick's best Bartender competition and all-around great guy at Hooch and Banter. We were lucky enough to have Jeff compete on our behalf at the Gin Loves Campari Competition in DC for Gin World. It was our absolute favorite cocktail of the night and Jeff really outdid himself for this one. Check it out below (or ask for one next time you are at Hooch)!
