Cocktail of the Week – A Cocktail for Jess

We’re huge fans of Rosie Schapp who writes about drinks and drinking in the NY Times magazine.

This drink tastes like spring.

2 ounces gin (whatever you like, but nothing too floral)
2 ounces grapefruit juice (fresh-squeezed is best)
1/2 ounce St. Germain elderflower liqueur
1 small squeeze of lime juice.

Shake all ingredients vigorously over ice, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass (it doesn’t hurt to run the lime wedge over the rim of the glass first). Garnish with a big fuzzy sage leaf, if you have one handy. This is also very refreshing over ice in a tall glass, topped with seltzer (soda water)
