One of my favorite local places to grab a drink or bite to eat is the National. The other day I stopped by for one of their winter cocktails. They have this wonderful house-made tonic made from Cinchona Bark, Bitter Orange Peel, Rose Petals, Cascara, Lemon-Lime-Orange, Rosemary, Juniper Berry, and Star Anise.
If you want to make this drink at home the house made tonic is available for purchase. I think it would make a great gift too. While you are here you can also pick up a bottle of the Georgia Olive Farms- Olive Oil, another sweet gift.
