Source: St. Patty’s Day Gin (& Juice) Cocktail

And we’re back! After taking a couple of weeks off to get our lives together, we’re coming back in a strong way – with a strong cocktail. (We know you missed our corny jokes…). I went in to HomeGoods the other day just to browse…as if anyone actually makes it out alive without buying anything…and came out with these awesome, old school cocktail glasses. I had to use them that night. Obviously.

Although it’s earlier than last year, I’m getting back into my “gin” kick. (Remember our fizzy gin concoction last year?) I also just recently came back from a trip to London, so I’m on a Beefeater streak. Obviously. So with some of the simple ingredients I had laying around, I threw this bad boy together. Oh, and did I mention it color coordinates perfectly with St. Patrick’s Day? 🙂

  • 1/4 cup Beefeater Gin
  • 1 cup cucumber juice
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • Splash of St. Germain
  • 1 slice of cucumber

I used my juicer for the cucumber juice, but you can also muddle it (get in a workout while you’re at it), or a blender. Place all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain and garnish with a cucumber slice.
