It’s summer…well, almost and I love a decent gin cocktail. I can usually drink gin all year but sometimes I reserve it for the warmer months; it’s so refreshing. Though I’m still trying to build my bar, I make sure to keep a bottle of gin on hand for those long days when I need to make a gin and tonic. I was recently reading through an issue of Food Network Magazine and saw a recipe for a cucumber gin spritzer. Before even reading the recipe, I knew I was going to try it. This drink is so refreshing and perfect after a long day’s work or a long day of frolicking around.

You’ll thank me later.
