Wild-harvested juniper berries and foraged herbs infuse Tumbleroot Botanical Gin with a taste of the high desert. Try the South Lawn cocktail, a modern take on the Southside, which adds cucumber-mint water, lemon, organic cane sugar, Bittermen’s Burlesque Bitters, and watermelon to the gin. It finishes clean and cool—perfect for the last days of summer. Continue your taste tour of the Southwest with a pint of Dortmunder Lager, made with regionally sourced hops, or Honey Hibiscus Wheat, brewed with local honey (tumblerootbreweryanddistillery.com).
