Lynn House is the brand ambassador for Heaven Hill in Louisville, KY. As a child Lynn recalls that she enjoyed nothing more as a child than picking peaches and other fresh produce on her grandparents' farm in Tennessee.
That tradition continues today as she loves to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables into her cocktails whenever she can—hence her nickname, "The Garden Girl."
Evening Shade is a summery drink that combines peach purée, cucumber, and whiskey and transports you back to Tennessee, or Kentucky, or wherever your heart wants to go.
