For a while now, Kevin and I have been doing a little thing we call “Cocktail of the Week.” We pick a drink -sometimes a classic like a gimlet or old fashioned, sometimes a concoction all our own- and learn to make it properly. If we don’t have the required ingredients, we run out to our favorite liquor store and buy what we’re missing.
This week, we made a classic gin cocktail, The Debutante, a spin on my all-time favorite cocktail, The Gimlet. It’s really simple and looks gorgeous. Plus, you probably have everything you need to make it already on hand.
Did I mention it’s to die for?
2 oz. Gin
0.75 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons Grenadine
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Enjoy!
