food and drink NS 2021

There are many, many reasons to visit Peninsula, the quaint East Nashville eatery specializing in shareable plates inspired by the Iberian Peninsula. But chief on the list is their stunning selection of Spanish-style gin-and-tonics. The selections change regularly, but the eight or so options available at any given time brilliantly showcase the dramatically diverse flavor profiles of the restaurant’s gin selection. Each G+T is simply crafted, highlighting a unique gin mixed with Peninsula’s housemade tonic and topped with an aromatic garnish — everything from peach and saffron to cucumber and black pepper to blueberry and wood sorrel. The end result is a crisp, refreshing cocktail that’ll have you questioning why you ever order anything else.
