Ok, don’t hate me. I know I promised you Mushroom & Pancetta Pasta with Whiskey Cream Sauce today, but that’s not what you’re gettin.
I made that in fall weather in Scotland, and it is definitely NOT fall here yet! Don’t let go of summer people! Here’s a little taste of my weekend at Virginia Beach last weekend where we cranked up the tunes, grilled veggies to tasty perfection, I managed to turn my skin from “fair” to “golden marshmallow” color, and we perfected this delicious cocktail.
Here’s what we did:
Salty Dog G & T
Measure into a tall glass with ice:
-2 parts gin
-4 parts grapefruit juice (fresh if you can, otherwise just make sure you buy a good one!)
-the juice of half a lime
-a splash of tonic water
Stir and enjoy – soaking up summer before we fall into autumn ;)
French phrase for fun:
J’aime l’automne, mais j’aime les cocktails d’été mieux.
I love the fall, but I like summer cocktails better.
