Is it really Friday? Oh thank goodness. I am so very happy this week is over. Tomorrow we get to celebrate two birthdays at the same party which I am absolutely looking forward to! Bring on the weekend and the good times!
I gave tonight's cocktail .5 shots out of 5. I tried another gin cocktail from the same site as last night's Red Cloud, which is spirited entertaining. Oh I can't finish this cocktail. Even though I added three other ingredients to it, all I can really taste is the gin. Remember, I do like gin now, BUT it must be added with other ingredients to where I slightly taste the gin. I can not drink gin by itself and that's what this cocktail tastes like..........gin. It's too bad because I was really hoping this one would be good. I guess I'll need to find another gin cocktail that I do enjoy. Here is the recipe for a Maiden's Blush:
1 1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz triple sec
2 oz ginger ale
1/4 oz grenadine
In a tall cocktail glass filled with crushed ice, add all of the ingredients above. Stir up your cocktail and give it a try if you must.
