Spring is here! The grass is green, the birds are singing, the sun is shining, and the weather is finally warm. For us that means it is officially front porch weather. Once the weather turns nice, 90% of our time home is spent hanging outside on our front porch. And at the Ices, no front porch hang time is complete with out a great cocktail. Lately I have found myself gravitating towards gin. Whiskey was my official drink of winter, but with the warm weather I have found myself wanting something light and refreshing.
I thought I would share with you my current cocktail obsession. I'll call it Jamey's Spring Gin fizz : )
- 2oz Gin (Hendricks, Bombay, or Beef Eater)
- 2-3oz Topo Chico
- 3/4oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 3/4oz Simple Syrup
Combine the gin, lemon juice, simple syrup & ice in a shaker. Shake like crazy! Strain into a cup of ice. Top off with Topo Chico. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
Voila! Now you are drinking my favorite spring drink. Light, refreshing, fizzy, & super tasty!
