Gin & Juice

Friday, October 22, 2010

This classic cocktail is no relation to Snoop Dogg, you have my word. Instead, you'll find a light, refreshing libation to celebrate the end of a long week-I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm so looking forward to a quiet evening and an elegant cocktail!


Gin in the Afternoon

2 oz of gin
2 oz of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1/2 oz of dry vermouth


In a cocktail shaker combine 1/4 cup each of gin and grapefruit juice, 1 tablespoon dry vermouth and a little crushed ice. Shake for no more than 5 seconds and strain it into a stemmed glass over ice cubes.

Notes: This is the perfect opportunity to use that herbal or floral gin; I like the rose notes of Hendrick's gin in this delicate cocktail.

Cheers!

  12. It may have nothing to do with Snoop Dogg but when I hear Gin & Juice that is where my mind automatically goes...maybe I am a gangster at heart (not really)
