Zinger

Here is a cocktail recipe from The Circular at The Hotel Hershey. This hotel is one of America's landmark hotels and was built by chocolate magnate Milton S. Hershey in the midst of the Great Depression. The four-star hotel's restaurant The Circular was designed by Mr. Hershey himself. As he often traveled alone, he was put in corners or behind pillars. Not wanting his guest to have a bad seat, he built a circular-shaped restaurant without corners or pillars. This drink, the Zinger, is a refreshing tribute to the town of Hershey's original positioning as "Pennsylvania's Summer Playground." This refreshing summer sipper features Beefeater Gin, brandy, St. Germaine Elderflower Liqueur, and the fresh flavors of ginger, lemon, and basil.
