To quote Amy Poehler in Mean Girls, happy hour is from four to six! Also, I need to mention how disappointed JD was the day he realized just how often I quote Mean Girls. Sure, that's a pretty common time frame for happy hour, but he hasn't thought about Taco Bell the same way since, mostly because this happens every single time. It must be because I have a big lesbian crush on Tina Fey. I'll see myself out now.
Moving on. I'm usually not one for sweet cocktails, but I am a fan of gin and trying new things. When I came across a recipe for this forgotten about cocktail, I knew I'd have to give it a try. After all, why not? I had all of the ingredients on hand and it would take all of two minutes to concoct. Don't be fooled by the pretty pink color, it's kind of strong.
2 ounces gin
.75 ounce fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons grenadine
Pour gin, lime juice, and grenadine over ice, stir, and enjoy!
I ended up crushing some ice in the blender to water it down a little bit. For the next round I'd add a little soda water, but then i'm not sure if that changes the name of the drink.
Be sure to let me know what you think if you end up trying this one!
Have a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!
