So, I made a goal this year not to purchase any cookbooks, cooking magazines, or anything that had recipes I had to pay for. The result has been going through the plethora of recipes I already owned and try them out.
It ended up being a Friday afternoon when I mixed up this concoction and thought of my friend, Mary. She and I had vowed to start trying out the recipes in this tequila cocktail recipe book I had received for Christmas awhile back, but we never got to it. The ‘Peyton Place’ cocktail got selected because I happened to have all of the ingredients and didn’t end up having to go to the store. After I mixed it up, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was very pleased. The drink has a sweetness to it, but it’s the perfect combination of sweet & tart. Perhaps, it will become my 2014 spring drink. 🙂
It seems I’ve misplaced the ingredient card, so here it goes from memory…
- 3 parts Gin
- 2 parts Slow Gin
- 5 parts grapefruit juice
- Simple Syrup (I used agave.)
- A dash of Club Soda
- Mix all ingredients in a drink shaker EXCEPT club soda. Pour into a glass, add club soda & ENJOY!
Mid-week drink anyone? It’s 5 ‘o clock somewhere – hooray!!
