I’ve been getting a little tired of the expense of micro brews and the redundancy of the red solo cup, so I created a little cocktail creation of my own. I’m usually not one for liquor. I stick to wine and beer for the most part. However I am partial to gin. I premade these cocktail for a day party. Not only were the Mason jars a charming touch, but also they kept the drink perfectly rationed and ice cold (when in a cooler).
Ingredients (per cocktail)
– 8 oz lemonade (I used crystal light)
– 4 oz of gin (use vodka if you’re a gin hater. It taste good too)
– 2 orange slices
– 4 lime slices
– Handful of chopped strawberries
– 5 mint leaves
Add the gin and lemonade and give it a little swirl. Then squeeze the lime and oranges into the cocktail. Drop the fruit in after giving it a little squeeze. Add the strawberries and mint leaves. Seal the lid tightly and give your drink a little shake. Keep it refrigerated or throw the drinks in a cooler. Enjoy, but not too much.
