Work, laundry, exercising, TPS reports ... we have a ton of things bogging us down every day. Get bogged down in a good way at Hide with the Bog Standard, a cocktail by one of Hide's owners, Scott Jenkins, which got him a spot in the finals of Caorunn Gin's 10-Year Switch International Cocktail Competition.

This Scottish-inspired cocktail was influenced by the flavors of the bog myrtle (also known as the Myrica gale), a plant whose spicy notes lend themselves nicely to the stirred cocktail paired with the warm flavors of the allspice dram. It'll be a smooth sipper, so make sure to take your time and slow down to smell the myrtle.

This cocktail will be available by request only through the summer. Order one and see what an award-winning cocktail tastes like.
