When it comes to Gin cocktails we are huge fans of the gin sour, Abbey Cocktails, and these Apple Cider Gin Cocktails. The gin Rickey is similar to the sour but doesn’t have any sugar. It’s perfectly refreshing and needs to be on your list to make soon!

Quick and easy cocktails are the best for entertaining guests and even better for a quiet evening at home. No need to go out for a simple and delicious cocktail when you can mix one up and cozy up on the couch with a good book or your current Netflix obsession. A Gin Rickey is just the ticket. 

Rickey cocktails can also be made with bourbon but the pairing of the gin and the lime is my favorite. These cocktails have been around since the 1800’s and became popular in the political crowd in Washington, but don’t let that stop you from trying it!

HANDY TOOLS FOR THE HOME BAR:

I got this fantastic bar set for Christmas. It so pretty that I put it on display in my kitchen.

Microplane Twist & Zest is perfect for juicing and making citrus garnishes for my favorite cocktails.

This Ice Crusher  is my new favorite thing.  Great if you don’t have an ice maker that crushes ice in your fridge.
