So, I completely failed this week. I missed our weekly group blog post. :( Although I'm four days late, I have a great summer cocktail for you all!
Annelih posted a recipe for mango pineapple rum punch which looks delicious! Rum always makes me think of summer. All those fruity cold drinks with little umbrellas in them!
Cassie did a Spanish wine drink called Tino de Verano. It looks super refreshing and is pretty simple to make. I'll adding it to my "took make" pile.
For my summer cocktail, I was planning on making a basil martini but Publix didn't have any basil, sad day. Instead, I went with what I had in the fridge. Strawberries, mint, ginger ale, and gin. It may sound like a strange combination but it was delicious, trust me!
3 sliced strawberries
4 mint leaves
1 shot of gin
1. Muddle the strawberries, mint, and sugar in the bottom of a tall glass. (I just used a spoon and smashed it all together )
2. Add gin, a couple of ice cubes, and top off glass with ginger ale.
3. Stir, sip, and enjoy! (don't spill half on the couch like I did)
