weekend cocktail

not making any promises, but i just got this idea, to make a new cocktail every weekend...
now that i have a couple "cool" glasses. (lol)

this weekend's cocktail is a gimlet! one of my favorite things to order at a bar! & i've mastered it at home myself.

i'll call this one...
liska's gimlet

1 part tequila
1 part grapefruit juice
agave (to taste, i used 1 1/2 tsp)
lots of mint

put all ingredients into a shaker with ice. shake vigorously (probably can shake lightly too). 
strain into a very cute small glass. toss a mint leaf (or 2) on top. 

i've made this exact drink but using whiskey. so i imagine, you can use any type of liquor. 
nate prefers whiskey & i like tequila.



  1. the pictures are so appealing that they make me wanna buy a shaker and a bottle of tequila!

  2. We haven't done hard alcohol in awhile, but I have agree with you on the tequila ; ) I love grapefruit juice. And mint.
