I am not a fan of sweet drinks (love the taste, hate the hangover) so I’ve had to find drinks that don’t have a lot of sugar in order to make it through the night.  I am not a big fan of Gin in general, but there is a boutique gin here in SF called Gin 209 that is SO GOOD!  Even gin skeptics will love this gin.  Anyway, my fave drink right now is a Gin Rickey made with Gin 209.

1 part gin

1 part club soda

generous splash of lime juice (I LOVE Nellie and Joes famous Key Lime Juice)

Shake gin and lime juice in a martini shaker and stir in club soda over ice.  Thats it!

One of my other easy go-to favorites is just simply Bitter Lemon and Vodka with a cherry.

These drinks arent really festive, nor girly.  They’re more like "end of the workday" drinks 🙂

I just made these last night to go with our Asian-inspired dinner:

  • Drop a lychee in the bottom of a champagne flute.
  • Add ~1 Tbsp. lychee syrup to the flute.
  • Fill the rest of the flute with champagne.
