Now that Juniper is sleeping through the night, (not nursing again til morning) I am able to indulge at the end of particularly difficult days. One of my all time favorite drinks is a gin and tonic. Simple and refreshing. The weather has been so unseasonably warm lately that I was in the mood for one last night. The one thing that I do not enjoy about the drink is that store-bought tonic waters all have high fructose corn syrup as the sweetener. So last night I set forth to create a close facsimile with what I had in the kitchen. I have to say, it was so delicious that I had a hard time not going for a second. I did however stop at just one, nobody likes a hung over mama.
1 shot of Gin
1 tsp lime juice
1 tsp honey
Combine gin, lime juice and honey in glass. Fill the glass with seltzer. Stir til honey is dissolved. Enjoy!
In the end it tasted more like a hard limeade than a gin and tonic, but hey, I do love me some limeade
