Cocktail Wednesday - Strawberry Gin Cocktail



So, we had our first Cocktail Wednesday of 2017 last week.  We've been quite faithful (?) in continuing this tradition started by my friend Shay.

Anyway, last week's drink was a Strawberry Gin Cocktail.  Recipe from here.

Ingredients:
  • Gin
  • Strawberries
  • Lemon (fresh lemon juice)
  • Mint (instead of basil -- mix up at the grocery store) 
  • Sugar
  • Club soda
  • Ice
 



here's me trying to be all artsy with my pictures ...

Basically, you take one strawberry, two mint leaves and 2 teaspoons of sugar and muddle them in the bottom of the shaker.  When you feel like everything is well muddled, you add gin (2 oz) and lemon juice (1 oz), and shake.  You pour that into the glass, with ice, and top off with the club soda (with a strawberry for garnish).  That's it. 

It was tasty, not too sweet, but sweet enough for me - another success!
