My girlfriends and I get together at least 3-4 times a year for a girl's weekend. We generally take trips, and this past weekend we visited our friend Laura (who is lucky enough to live in New Orleans!) for the first weekend of Jazz Fest. I always offer to make cocktails for everyone, and this year was no different. I wanted to make something pretty (because, instagram, of course) but also tasty. I decided to make the girls a blush gimlet with rosemary.
Before you get started, this is the main ingredient you'll need for your Blush Gimlet!
It is my absolute go-to!
Have you made a cocktail with Seagrams Gin before? When I'm at a cocktail lounge and keeping things simple, I usually order it in a dirty gin martini, but today I'm going to show you how to make something a little fancier, something that your girlfriends will want to Instagram right away!
Blush Gimlet with Rosemary
Ingredients for one drink
2 oz of GIN
I prefer this brand for the Blush Gimlet
1.5 oz Grapefruit Juice
0.5 oz simple syrup
You can make your own or purchase from liquor store.
I was on the go, so I purchased mine
Rosemary for garnish
Grapefruit for garnish
If you've been reading my "Drink on Fleek" Series, you'll know that I always prefer to use a plain plastic drink mixer as my shaker. Judge if you will, but it is SOOOO quick and easy and has a built in strainer for keeping the ice out of your drink.
Combine GIN, grapefruit juice, simple syrup and ice cubes and shake. Strain into cocktail glass and garnish with rosemary and grapefruit.
It's that simple!
I actually really enjoy just a simple gin on the rocks with some olives and olive juice too! The girls and I spent Saturday night enjoying Seagram's together. It was so fun getting to see them, I can't wait until our next adventure (and our next cocktail!)
What's your favorite cocktail to make for your girlfriends?
