Thirsty Thursday -- Travis Nass of Rancho Pinot Talks Fall Flavors

Inasmuch as we love coming up with fun drink ideas for Thirsty Thursday each week, we realized that we weren't experts in this field and we knew plenty of folks who were.  So, we turned to ace bartender Travis Nass of Rancho Pinot restaurant in Scottsdale, Ariz. to give us his forecast of what spirits he'll be working with this fall.

Travis hinted at some autumnal libations that will include his new faves -- walnut liqueur and allspice liqueur.  We can only imagine that starting off a fine meal.

A spirit we don't talk about much here on FeedingFrenzy is gin....simply because Barb has always thought that it reminded her of sucking on a pine tree. However, her hubby is a huge gin fan and has a bottle of Bombay Sapphire in the freezer at all times. According to Travis, there is a whole new line of gins out that may just change the minds of anti-gin drinkers like me. Nolet's Finest Gin ( now produces Nolet's Silver.  Their website calls it a "floral and fruit-forward gin and expresses the essence of three coveted ingredients: Turkish Rose, white peach and raspberry." The site goes on to state that the newest generation of the family business wanted to create a "modern twist" on a classic.  I'm bold enough to state that I bet Travis will come up with something intriguing enough that even this gin-shy drinker will try.

So, what's your go-to gin drink?
