Gin and Sauvignon sipper: An Every Day Gin Cocktail for the Wine Drinker

Sometimes you just need a good drink in the middle of the week. This one is stout without being too strong, flavorful but not overwhelming, and goes great with relaxing by a fire.

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz gin (this kind is lovely)
  • 1 oz Sauvignon Blanc white wine
  • 1/2 oz elderflower liquor
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • Top off with Rambler grapefruit flavored sparkling water
  • A couple of teaspoons, to taste, maraschino cherry juice

Place a few large cubes of ice in a glass (this one is gorgeous and a good deal). Add all ingredients except maraschino juice, and stir. Add the cherry juice at the end and let it settle on its own. Drink.
