Hotel brand Hilton Garden Inn has collaborated with award-winning actress, director and author Judy Greer to create a new specialty cocktail called Judy’s Garden Gin. A fresh twist on the classic Daisy, Judy’s Garden Gin combines Tanqueray gin, fresh lemon juice, Chambord liqueur and simple syrup.
Judy’s Garden Gin, which can be served up or on the rocks, capitalizes on the versatility of gin and the spirit’s growing popularity. The cocktail pairs well with Hilton Garden Inn’s shareable small plates, the company says. For instance, it brings a balance to the heat of the Spicy Meatballs and Fresh Mozzarella, while the Artisan Cheese Tasting Board provides a pleasant earthiness to complement the light, tart profile of the drink.
Greer has worked with Hilton Garden Inn since 2017 as the star of its ad campaign, which includes new advertisements on Instagram and Facebook. Judy’s Garden Gin made its debut in late September. It’s available at Garden Grille & Bar, Hilton Garden Inn’s full-service restaurant, with more than 550 locations across the U.S. Here’s the recipe.
