I enjoyed a much-anticipated girls night last week. The enlightening conversation! The laughs! The wine! I thought about it all day leading up to the big event. The minute the waiter arrived I busted out with “tempernillo!” I did not need time to look over the wine list.
My company took the time to look over the wine list. And they had sparkling wine.
Because we were dining al fresco.
And it was abillion degrees.
Red wine is not a heat-wave beverage. I need some refreshing drinks in my repertoire. And as much as it pains me to admit it in the land of TexMex … I’m not a margarita gal.
And gin reminds us a little of Don Draper. Which can never be bad.
Enter: gin! And a post series!
I’ll share one drink recipe everyday this week. Today’s is the classic recipe for gin.
Today’s Recipe: Martini
1 1/2 oz. gin
