bar

Speaking of gin...

Saturday night I made a couple of St. Germain 75s.  That's:

2 ounces Hendricks Gin
2 ounces St. Germain
1/2 ounce simple syrup
1/2 ounce lemon juice
2 ounces sparkling wine (I stole some of Cathy's Korbel)

Mmmmm.

For a good bit of the day I'd been drinking Sam Adams Winter Lager so the drink made a great departure from that.  I passed mine around the room and everyone seemed to enjoy it, too.  The first was a bit too sweet, so I upped the sparkling wine in the second (I was using the Demerara simple syrup which might've caused that).

I need to buy some of my own sparkling wine so I can make this more.
