When it comes to cocktails, I can be pretty picky. I don’t love dark liquor and I might be the only girl who thinks vodka sodas taste like Windex. At dinner, I tend to drink rosé; if I’m out at a bar, I usually order a Hendricks gin and tonic. I was introduced to this fun twist on a gin cocktail this summer and have been ordering it ever since. It’s light and refreshing and a nice way to partake in happy hour without getting too tipsy. I hope you enjoy!

  1. THANK YOU for saying vodka sodas taste like Windex! If I’m out with friends and getting drinks, I’d rather at least enjoy what I’m drinking. I’ll definitely throw the French 75 into the mix this weekend!
