Recipe: Pineapple Gin and Tonic

I spent last week house/petsitting in the suburbs for a friend of mine's parents, which was a great change of pace for me. A beautiful house, some fun pets, and a change of scenery, SOLD.

With the spring-like weather over the weekend, I knew I wanted to make a refreshing cocktail and use up some ingredients that were lingering in my house. Then I stumbled upon this BEAUTIFUL glasses one night while looking for a wine glass and I knew I wanted to photograph them. Look how gorgeous they are! I gasped when I spotted them! Forever a sucker for beautiful glassware.

It's maybe a little early for this cocktail. This is probably best served while sitting by a pool. Or lounging on a beachchair. Or even just at brunch outside on a spring day. BUT I'm hoping this weather stays for good. So this cocktail is part of my wishful thinking. It's super simple and easy to throw together at home, but very different and sweeter than a traditional g&t. 

Pineapple Gin and Tonic

Makes one drink

2 oz gin
2 oz pineapple juice
tonic water
half a lime
lime slices for garnish

Fill a tumbler glass with ice. Add gin and pineapple juice and then fill the rest of the glass with tonic water. Squeeze half of a lime into the glass and give it a stir. If you like a stronger drink, add 1-2 more ounces of gin before adding the tonic. Cheers!
