Cocktail Wednesday - Lime Gin Fizz and Gin Hound

So we've had two more weeks of cocktails.  The first was a Lime Gin Fizz.

  • gin (2 parts)
  • lime juice (1 part)
  • soda water (4 parts)
I ended up making it with tonic water instead of soda water, so I think it was just a gin & tonic with lime juice.  I was going to try it wiht the soda water, but didn't want to open a bottle and end up tossing it.

The drink was good -- but not great. I didn't even take any pictures :(.

The next one was a Gin Hound.  Apparently a gin version of a Grey Hound. It just so happened that I had bought a bag of grapefruit at the store the week we made these so that worked out really well.  Fresh grapefruit juice and all.  Recipe from here.

  • 3/4 cup fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon Juice
  • 4 ounces gin 
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth

 basically you put it all in a shaker, shake, pour over ice and drink.

I'm a big grapefruit fan so I liked this one very much.  I ended up adding extra grapefruit juice to tone the alcohol down a little.

Definitely one to do over.  I probably should keep track of the ones I like ...
