cocktail hour.

It’s 5:00 somewhere, right? Here’s a cocktail recipe that looks delicious for a nice Saturday evening. Chin chin! I’m about to commence baking The Perfect Birthday Cake for my friend Matt‘s 28th birthday. Let’s hope it turns out as beautifully as Smitten Kitchen’s. xo, m

aka "the honeymooner"

Ingredients:
1.5oz Gin (Hendrick’s, Beefeater, Bombay Sapphire… whatever strikes your fancy)
1.5oz Pastis (Pernod – or you could always use Pastis’ trendier cousin, Absinthe)
1 teaspoon Grenadine

Methodology:
In a rocks or old-fashioned glass carefully layer the grenadine, pastis and gin (in that order). Do not stir the drink but watch as the ingredients combine over time. Add ice and garnish with a lime (if desired). And then, of course, enjoy!
