It's Friday, which means we're well overdue for a craft cocktail around here. Today I'm sipping on the Blush Gimlet - the sweet, tangy, and herbaceous cousin of the classic Gimlet. If you're looking for a lighter drink for summer days, try topping this one off with sparkling water for a blushing treat.
1.5 oz gin
2 oz fresh grapefruit juice
fresh sage leaves
Muddle sage leaves at bottom of glass. Shake gin + grapefruit juice and pour over sage + ice. Top with sparkling water and/or lime wedges, if desired.
Darlings, what are you sipping on this weekend? I'm planning to alternate between these beauties and, my favorite, Kentucky Mules!
