I think it’s funny that I like gin so much. If I’m out and decide to get a cocktail, it’s usually a fun gin drink . . . and I think that’s mostly because of what it’s usually paired with it. I often see gin with fresh herbs, grapefruit, and simple ingredients, and that’s what draws me in.
When I was at the liquor store prepping for New Years Eve, I walked past bottles of Hendricks (my favorite gin) and decided to buy a bottle. I only made 1 cocktail on NYE and this bottle will probably last forever, but it’s fun to mix it up sometimes!
Super simple, but I enjoyed it ❤ Feel free to play around with the quantity of each ingredient
-1.5 – 2 shots gin of your choice
-Fresh lime juice
-Cucumber, 2 – 3 thin slices
-2 – 3 blackberries
-Fill your glass to the top with ice
-Add in your gin (I only used 1.5 shots because I was using a small, rocks glass – use 2 shots for larger drinks)
-Squeeze in desired amount of fresh lime, I used about 1/4 – 1/3 of a lime
-Add cucumber & black berries
-Add 1 sprig of rosemary
-Top with soda water
-Stir or shake to mix everything up & enjoy!
