Hey there! You found my old site. You must be a detective. Come and see this post and much more at Tastefully Julie.
white lady

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
  • ice

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.
