It’s crazy what combinations of things can taste good together (peanut butter and cucumber, anyone?). I stumbled upon a cocktail recipe recently that sounded up my alley, but when I went to grab supplies I couldn’t find a few of the key ingredients. This recipe is what I ended up with instead. When I left the grocery store my thought was honestly that I probably should have just scrapped the whole idea and come up with something completely new instead of using half of the right ingredients. But let me tell you, this turned out REALLY good, a great level of sweet and tart.
-1 part New Holland Gin (or equivalent, having quality gin is really key though)
-2 parts ginger ale or ginger beer (I used Reed’s Premium)
-Chunk of orange, squeezed
-Mint, muddled with ice
