On Drinking as a Coping Mechanism.


Ok, that’s not actually what this post is about. But it IS about alcohol and I thought I was being clever with the title.

Today I wanted to share with you a little drink that I’ve been sipping in the warm weather we’ve had the luxury of enjoying recently. Pretend like that sentence makes sense and/or is in the same verb tense.

Enter: The French Gimlet (makes 1 drink)

Recipe originally calls for:

  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce elderflower liquor
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice (about half a lime)

I vamped:

  • 2 1/2 ounces Vivacity Native Gin
  • 1 1/2 ounces St. Germain Elderflower liquor
  • juice of half a lime
  • Strip of lime peel, for garnish
  • Serve over ice

Be careful, these go down quickly, and they’re high octane.  Woo!


Happy end of April!


Until next time,
