I’m back! ....a day late but none the less, let’s have a drink.
I have been MIA lately due to being sick… and as I laid in bed, home from work, I thought to myself I should be getting some prime blogging done…but all the energy I had was used to start the next episode of Medium on the lap top. Let just say I watched a LOT of Medium and Ghost Whisperer (hey don’t judge me! These are great shows…I swear). Thankfully I am feeling much better Dr. Robitussin and do not sound like a man anymore. Seriously I answered a call from my brother and he thought Mr. Honey had picked up….not a good sign.
So now that I am back in the land of the living…and drinking….lets make a cocktail shall we.
This one is going to be quickie since I don’t really feel like hitting the local liquor store. Luckily the drink gods are smiling upon me and it only took two tries to pull a cocktail number from the jar for which I had all the ingredients on hand. SWEET! #36 Gertie’s Garter.
RECIPE: 3 parts Dry Gin, 1 part Grapefruit Juice, 1 part Grenadine. Shake well with ice and strain into glass. Add fruit desired.
TIP: If you are working to achieve a fully stocked bar like we are, I suggest to always keeps some small cans of fruit juices on hand. We always have a few cans of tomato juice, grapefruit juice, and pineapple juice in the cabinet to use as mixers.
So Viola! The drink in my new "Executive" cocktail glass:
VERDICT: Ok I'm really digging this one, it is a keeper....and I didn't think I liked Gin.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
