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!
