Watermelon Gin Cooler

Kiwi juice + watermelon juice=sewer juice.  Delicious, but not visually appealing.  You know what goes well with watermelon juice inside and out?

Gin!  I used Bombay vs. Hendricks because the subtle flavor profile of Hendricks would likely have been overwhelmed by the watermelon. 

I mixed the juice of 1/4 watermelon (about 2.5 cups) with the juice of two lemons and one orange, take 6 oz of this mixture and combine with 1 1/2 oz. gin, serve over ice.

Don't worry, this wasn't an eye-opener after the waffles.  I made it last night while video skyping with Ian so technically I wasn't even drinking alone.

And I got to use my cocktail picks....

Friday Night Cocktail: Flying High

In honor of my workplace that decided to update its electronic medical record on July 1st...the day that all the new providers start work...I give you the Aviation!  A classic cocktail, tweaked by me and inspired by the Tipsy Baker.

Antique glassware compliments of my grandmother....Here are my proportions

2 oz. gin

1 oz. lemon juice

1 oz. Luxardo maraschino liqueur

1 tsp. creme de violette

Pour over ice in cocktail shaker; shake and strain into glass.

 I would buy this just for the bottle....got to find something else to make with it. 

Let the holiday weekend begin!
