Maiden's Blush

Day 338

Maiden's Blush
.5 shots out of 5

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.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to searching for a GOOD gin cocktail.
