Is there anything more summer appropriate than a Gin & Tonic on a hot day?**
Obviously the answer to this question is “no”.
When Catie came over yesterday we had to have G&T’s because it was a wonderfully hot summer day. I used the last drops of my Bombay Gin (from now on all Gin on LCC is Tanqueray) and I also used diet tonic. Tonic is actually quite caloric. There was lime for good measure of course.
Swizzle stick that I got when I stayed at the Plaza in New York when I was 15! My mom saved and sent it when she converted my childhood bedroom to a guest room. Mixes the cocktails well every time.
What is your favorite Summer cocktail?
**Answering “a south side” cocktail would also be left coast approved 😉
