Heaven on Her Lips


Heaven on Her Lips

Heaven on Her Lips is an irresistible cocktail crafted by Bar Manager Ryan McGrale at Tavern Road, a high energy, modern restaurant and bar at Fort Point in Boston, Mass. When forming his seasonally-focused hand-crafted cocktails, McGrale, an alum of No. 9 Park, is inspired by the neighborhood's history as an artist's community. He uses locally-sourced spirits to mix up drinks from his list of cocktails, like the Heaven on Her Lips, a refreshing gin-based cocktail with strawberry and basil flavors. This is by far one of the best summery gin cocktails.
