Shh … Gins the Word
As the weather warms up, light, sparkling, crisp drinks are a favorite around here. Most of our guests turn down the gin if we give them a choice, but they can’t resist a good French 75 or our Tastes Like Pink cocktail — both refreshing and easy cocktails made with gin. Just don’t mention the gin part right away.
Tastes Like Pink Cocktail
- 1 ounce gin
- 1 ounce elderflower or St. Germain liqueur
- Rosé Champagne
- Lemon peel for a twist
Pour the first two ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake well. Pour into a cocktail glass and top with sparkling rosé wine or Champagne. Serve with a twist of lemon. Ahh.
