Am I the only person quarantine has converted into a mixologist?
Since being home and having ample downtime, I have taken to mixing up cocktails with ingredients on hand and others I get my hands on through grocery delivery/mail ordering such as juices, syrups, etc.
Which brings me to the concoction shaken today: Sailor's Soda as I like to aptly call it. I tincture of vitamin C ladden juices and gin the beverage could have boarded pirate ships of the olden days and cured scurvy (or so I'd lkke to think).
Check out the recipe below. It's bright and easy on the palate but definitely packs a punch!
2 oz pineapple juice
1 oz guava nectar
1 oz lemon juice
1/2 cut up lemon
1/2 cut up lime
1/4 tsp of sugar or sugar substitute
2 oz gin
A splash of Club Soda
Mix all the ingredients in a shaker with the ice (reserve 1/2 the lemon and lime pieces). Shake well until mixed.
Pour into a glass over ice and top with a splash of club soda. Add the lemon and lime pieces to garnish.
ARG! (I couldn't help it)
Sip and enjoy!
