The scariest (and best) cocktails are the ones that taste so good and so refreshing that you actually forget there's alcohol in it! Well, that's this cocktail (you've been warned!). Hopefully you don't have an attachment to orange juice and champagne because this brunch drink just might move to the top of your list! Don't believe me? Make it and see for yourself.
In a collins glass, gently muddle the cucumber slices, mint, lemon juice, simple syrup.
Pour in gin, elderflower liqueur, and some light ice.
Stir the cocktail to blend the ingredients, then fill with more ice and top with club soda.
Garnish with a sprig of mint and cucumber wheel
Remember that really cool person you met that didn’t like margaritas? Yeah, me neither. It really doesn’t matter the time of day, a margarita is appropriate at all hours. If you’re not mixing up a grapefruit margarita this weekend, you might need to re-evaluate your priorities.
Remember that pretty cool person you met that didn't like root beer floats? Yeah, me neither. Adding some quality bourbon into this classic dessert instantly turns this into a boozy treat anyone would enjoy.
So if you’re like me, you don’t just settle for two brunch cocktails. I can’t take credit for this particular drink, since it’s actually a recipe from one of my favorite bars in Chicago, but I kid you not it changed my life! And I’m pretty positive it will do the same for you, which is why I’m sharing it.
