Rainier Brewing Company has a new gin — Rainier Mountain Fresh Gin. And with that mountain fresh gin, comes this Mountain Fresh Spritzer! It's the drink you didn't know you wanted until you have it in your hand. The grapefruit citrus pulls the botanical notes from the gin forward and is freshened up with a splash of prosecco and sparkling water. This drink is simplicity at its finest.
