It’s summer, and what says summer better than gin? If you’re asking me, I have absolutely no idea. The Backstage Kitchen and Bar at Hotel Providence serves up summer topped with tonic with their Hamiltonic cocktail. Named after the smash hit musical you may have heard of (insert some pun about Gin-Manuel Miranda here), its flavor is cucumber-forward with just enough of the elderflower liquor to smooth out the tonic bitterness. You can enjoy one après-theater along with their prix-fixe menu if you fancy, or just imbibe on their lovely manicured patio in the heart of the city. Either way, it’s gin season.
