Relatively speaking, I’ve come to appreciate gin rather late in my life. It’s become one of those things I drink on a sunny afternoon when I want to keep things fresh and cheery instead of something I make use of it at home. I’m normally more of a dry vodka martini guy anyway.
But last night my friend (and booze aficionado) Steve, sent me this recipe. This afternoon the ingredients were in my shopping cart.
2 parts Brokers Gin
2 parts Cranberry Juice
1 part lemon-lime soda
2 sliced strawberries
Put strawberries in old fashioned glass. Cover w/ice cubes. Add Gin, cranberry Juice and lemon/lime soda. Stir gently.
And after taking one sip of this cocktail I don’t think it’ll be long before it needs replacing.
