Gin has an herbal flavor that is marked with citrus and spices. Most gin is dry with noticeable pine flavors because juniper dominates traditional recipes. The oldest styles tend to be sweeter while modern styles put less emphasis on the juniper and may focus on another herb, fruit, or spice flavor.
Gin has been making a resurgence lately. Some of the more popular gin cocktail recipes consist of French 75, Gimlet, Gin and Tonic, Gin Fizz, Martini, Negroni, Pink Gin, Tom Collins and the Vesper.
