Confessions of a Mixologist: Veel Geluk
Veel Geluk, which means 'good luck' in Dutch, is a mix of genever from Holland and raspberry liqueur. If you've ever had genever you are aware it can be tough to swallow on its own. When mixed with the raspberry liquor the sweetness balances out the bitterness of the gin. Bartender Angie created this cocktail and enjoys mixing it up for her husband. Give it a try at the Lincoln Park Tasting Room, or mix one up at home.
