Signature drinks are nothing new. But over the last year or so, there’s been a welcomed trend back to the classics. Dirty martini or Scotch on the rocks? With summer finally here, I thought I’d share three of my favorite classic summer libations to tempt you…tradition with a twist.
MOSCOW MULE: splash of lime, 1 part vodka, 2 or 3 parts Ginger Beer (preferably Cock N’ Bull or D&G Old Jamaica Brands), mint garnish.
PIMM’S AND LEMONADE: 1 part Pimm’s, 2 to 3 parts lemonade. Garnish with one or more of the following: orange, lemons, strawberries, cucumber (my personal favorite) and mint.
THYME INFUSED GIN LEMON DROP: 1 part Gin, 2 or 3 parts Lemonade, Thyme sprig
