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.

 Summer Cocktail Recipe on The sTORIbook Blog

The Missionary

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

Glass: rocks
Garnish: grapefruit peel
Combine ingredients and shake with ice until chilled. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass, garnish.

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!

    Definitely one of my favorite drinks at The Brooklynite! I also recommend trying out the Londinium #3 the lavender and mint really make an incredible fusion of flavor
