We made a horrible mistake that has only exacerbated our kitchen renovation woes. When the delivery truck came with our cabinets we directed the nice men unloading the truck to pile the myriad boxes into our dining room, temporarily blocking access to our liquor cabinet. Alas, Katherine had stashed some gin in her closet so it wasn’t a total loss. While the measurements below are precise, she must confess that the drink was a bit free form since doing dishes involves washing them in a bathroom sink these days — hence the plastic cup.
- 1 1/2 ounces gin
- 1 ounce lemon juice
- 1 tsp simple syrup
- tonic water
In your fanciest plastic cup, mix the lemon juice, gin and simple syrup. Throw in some ice (or not if you emptied the trays in an attempt to lighten the load while you moved the refrigerator into the living room so you could tile). Top with desired amount of tonic water and garnish with a cherry.
