Posted on June 10, 2015 by 6 | 14 CommentsHey PARISH friends! Giveaways are among one of our favorite things to do around here and since it's summer we figured why not have a summery giveaway!
These cute items will have you prepared for the most delicious and fun summer cocktail party! Can we please bring cocktail parties back into fashion??! No dinner to prepare...just cut up some limes and lemons and get to shakin' that cocktail shaker! MY kinda party!
OK! So, in order to put your name in the drawing please comment below with your favorite summer cocktail! Include the recipe if you want to...we're always looking for new drink recipes to try out...or at least I am! Below is one of my go-to summery drinks. My friend saw me make it and said it takes too long and she would be so thirsty by the time it was made she would chug it. I don't mind the wait...it's always worth it!
Rebecca's Basil & Cucumber Gimlet
4 slices of cucmber
1 lemon wedge
3 basil leaves
1 small jigger club soda
1 large jiggerVodka
Muddle your cucumber and basil together and add to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. In cocktail shaker, pour in a large jigger of vodka a small jigger of club soda. Squeeze your lemon into the mix and add a teaspoon of sugar. Shake shake shake. Take your used lemon wedge and run it around the rim of a martini glass. Pour sugar onto a plate and dip the rim into the sugar. Get to pouring and enjoy!
**Sometimes when I'm feeling frisky, I double the vodka and add a touch more club soda. Just add more sugar according to your taste.**
If you make this drink, let me know how you liked it! Can't wait to see who the winner is!
Until next time!
