Barricade Cocktail

G’Vine redefines gin by introducing the flavor of the rare green vine flower, bringing beautiful aromatics and floral essences. The Barricade Cocktail was created to commemorate Bastille Day, July 14th, when protesters stormed the barricades of the Bastille prison, leading to the end of the French monarchy and the birth of the French republic. If this cocktail has that much historical importance, it is bound to make a powerful impression! This cocktail uses G’Vine Floraison, an 80 proof liquor that is smooth, vibrantly floral, and warmly spicy. 

Deliver Ingredients


  • 2 Ounces G'Vine Floraison gin
  • 1 Ounce freshly squeezed lime juice

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
