heeey guys, it’s thursday! cheers! let’s talk about gin, k?
last week we went to my aunt and uncle’s house for Easter dinner and i have to tell you that there are two things that never disappoint me at Easter dinner and they are 1. my aunt’s homemade lemon surprise desserts and 2. my uncle’s cocktails and yes they are literally the coolest aunt and uncle ever and you absolutely should be jealous.
anywho. we had a few of these and totally craved them immediately after we stopped drinking them so decided to go on a booze field trip last weekend to stock up on Hendrick’s and St. Germain and now here we are. also sometimes when i get excited i speak in run-on sentences, but let’s just keep moving so we can get to the drinks.
elderflower collins: 1pt. St. Germain, 2pts. gin or vodka (we used Hendrick’s here, but I also had it with Tito’s last week and it was just as delish). top with soda water, a little lime juice and a dash of simple syrup, mix, garnish with a lime slice, et voila! so into it.
think i’m going to try out some more recipes this week with all our new goodies (we even MADE simple syrup, which felt like a very grown-up thing to do) and share them on the blog. got any favorites i have to try? do tell! xo, mo.
