It’s one of those kind of nights. After watching a 2 hour swim meet and not getting home until 7:30 the last thing I plan to do is cook. Luckily swim meet also means free pizza. Eat up, kids! Now it’s mommy time.
This drink is called a White Lady. It’s a refreshing, yet potent, gin cocktail. Mmmm…. gin. I’ve been making these a lot lately when I’m craving something in a fancy glass, however, I just learned I’ve been making them wrong. I’ve been using lime juice when the official recipe calls for lemon juice. Pardon my faux pas.
First, gather the ingredients:
- 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
- 1 ounce cointreau or triple sec if you’re cheap (when it comes to orange flavored liqueur, I’m cheap)
- 2 ounces gin
Add everything to a shaker and shake vigorously. Pour into a fancy glass and enjoy. Be careful, they go down easy! And, for the record, I actually prefer lime juice.
