Who’s ready for summer?  We are! Sunshine, warm weather, being outside, the beach, the pool, cookouts…. just FUN in general.

A classic, favorite summer beverage of ours is a Gin & Tonic.  I’ve realized that your either LOVE gin, or you absolutely hate it.  Well in our house, we keep Gin by the handle, especially Hendrick’s Gin.

Inspiration: Our recent trip to the beautiful city of New Orleans, where we drank a LOT of G&Ts.  HEY.. it’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend here in CT!  Carpe diem.

Hendricks & Tonic Recipe:

  • 4 to 5 Ice Cubes
  • 3 ounces gin (recommended: Hendricks)
  • 4 ounces tonic water (recommended: Schweppes)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Thin cucumber slices
  • Mint, muddled

Happy Friday & have a great weekend!
