Hi and welcome! I’m super excited to get this going and I hope I can provide you all with some tasty recipes, good drinks, and good times with those you love around the dinner table. I also look forward to connecting with all of you! If you would like to know a little bit more about me, you can go here and read about my first experience in the kitchen.
Every week on the blog, I will be featuring a Saturday drink of the week. This will range from cocktails to coffee and the like, but in honor of my first post, I decided we should all sit back, relax, and clink our glasses to new beginnings. So, let me start off by saying that I enjoy a good cocktail from time to time. Particularly when said cocktail is smooth and perfectly refreshing, like this one is. Beautiful, ripe strawberries muddled with the refreshing taste of cucumber and further elevated by notes of citrus, plus…. gin? Count me in.
- 2 shots of gin
- 1 shot lemon juice
- 1 shot lime juice
- 2 shots agave syrup
- 4 sliced strawberries
- ½ sliced cucumber
- In a cocktail shaker, muddle the strawberry and cucumber slices.
- Combine the lemon juice, lime juice and agave syrup, then add to the shaker.
- Add gin.
- Add ice. Shake & Serve.
