Hello, sTORIbook readers! I’m Misha from FabBites and Tori asked me to offer up a summer recipe or two for you all. I LOVE summer and especially summer food and drinks, so I jumped at the chance to come up with something.
I thought about a new take on margaritas, or maybe some simple whisky drinks, but then I thought of something even better. I recently visited The Brooklynite and thought Jeret Pena, cocktail magician extraordinaire, could come up with something new and completely amazing. Being a super nice guy, he sent me this recipe on the double.
1 1?2 oz. gin
3?4 oz. blueberry drinking vinegar (I bought Hong Cho brand on Amazon – if you can’t find it locally, just check there)
1?2 oz. fresh grapefruit juice
2 slices of cucumber
Tools: shaker, strainer
If you’ve never been to The Brooklynite, chances are you’re not drinking the most adventurous cocktails in the South. Take a trip over there and have a Sazerac, a French 75 or this drink, The Missionary and see what sophisticated beverages are really about.
I hope you enjoyed this beverage! Next, I’ll bring you my absolute favorite, extremely easy summer hors d’ouvre recipe!
