Herbal Hour

Introducing Herbal Hour!

We think you deserve more from what you drink which is why we’re taking a new spin on happy hour and elevating it with the power of plants. Every month, we’ll be partnering with a different like-minded, plant-powered brand to bring you the best herbal cocktail and mocktail recipes Earth has to offer! Plants benefit us in so many ways, so why not bring them to happy hour?!

Sunwink x AMASS

Say hello to our first Herbal Hour partner - AMASS! AMASS, like Sunwink, believes in the power of plants. From botanical spirits to body care products, they make clean botanics for modern life.

We hope you tuned into our Herbal Hour Instagram Live, but if not, we’ve recapped all the fun for you! You can also rewatch the IG Live here!

Mixologist Jason Eisner took over the AMASS Instagram and walked us through the crafting of his very own Sunwink x AMASS herbal cocktail - the Rose + Lemon Poppy Spritz. We’ve provided the recipe along with Jason’s Pickle Buck cocktail recipe featuring Sunwink Detox Ginger and AMASS Gin below. Try them out yourself and show us your creations on Instagram!
