gin citrus fizz

The other night while grocery shopping, I bought a (cheap) bottle of gin. I don’t know what came over me. Gin is something I usually avoid. But, ever since I restored my bar cart, I’ve been a bit more adventurous with my drinks. Once we got home, I didn’t know what to do with it. I tried searching for recipes, but came up short on most of the ingredients. One trend I did notice throughout all the recipes, citrus.

Gin Citrus Fizz – makes one

2 oz gin

splash of orange juice

2 drops bitters

3 wedges grapefruit

lemon sparking water

Add ice to a regular sized glass, pour in gin and bitters. Squeeze grapefruit wedges into your glass and add the rind to the drink. Splash in some orange juice, and fill the rest of the way with sparkling water. Stir, and enjoy.

I didn’t think I could like gin, but it is a surprisingly refreshing drink! What do you drink with your gin??
