A great Tuesday to one and all! I think I may have found a cocktail for all you gin lovers out there to enjoy. If you like the back notes of this spirit, and want to get the overall flavor of what you are imbibing, this is one that you may want to try.
There are no hidden secrets here with this mixed beverage. No fruit juices to hide the liquor. Yes, maybe a little citrus to help in rounding out the flavors of this cocktail. However, this is a drink for the true novice; one who enjoys a nice sipper for the cocktail hour. For those who are used to drinking juice filled cocktails, this may be one you may want to be adventurous on, since the combination gives you a soothing finished product without the liquor “bite” that a true martini has to offer, yet also gives you the punch you are looking for when enjoying the aforementioned.
Yes, a true cocktail that will satisfy every craving. In my opinion, there is no other way to enjoy a mixed drink. Enjoy all the ingredients and savor in how each compliment one another with each passing sip. Your tastebuds will thank you as they dance and enjoy the many layers of flavor this cocktail has to offer.
Hope your day is filled with good moments and even better memories. Cheers!
