fig & whiskey go on a picnic

this weekend we met up to talk about a few things we have up our sleeves like a girls night in, a gift bag give away, and a bigger bash we are pretty excited about planning.  sometimes its hard to carve out time for a sit down meeting (we are both pretty much always on the go).  so when we can have a full day meeting we want to make sure we do it right.  we made these delicious cocktails which were perfect for that summer heat and some equally delicious sandwiches for a backyard picnic meeting.  the cocktails were SUPER easy to make and look simply adorable. we picked up some fresh mint and cucumbers from the farmers market and the elderflower rose lemonade from our local grocery store.  

we used vodka and gin since we each prefer one or the other (even though I prefer vodka I think the gin version may have taken the cake).  see the recipe below:

1 1/2 oz** gin (or vodka)

2 oz Elderflower Rose Lemonade

4 large mint leaves

garnish with cucumber slice and a bunch o’ mint

top off with cucumber spritzer from trader joes (not pictured)

** we didn’t use a jig to measure and tend to have heavy hands so really, you do you on the measuring side because hey, you’re the one enjoying it!

don't forget your sunnies and go heavy on the ice, it's hot out there! CHEERS!
