Mighty Thirst: Gin and Juice (Box)

Mighty Thirst: Gin and Juice (Box) | Mighty Girl

I found myself low on mixers this week, and I have a kid. You do the math. Necessity is the mother of god this is good.

Gin and Juice (Box)

• Take three mint leaves and roll them around between your fingers until they’re bruised. Throw them in the glass.
• Add a few cubes of ice.
• Shot of Hendrick’s Gin.
• Juice from half a lemon, then rub the lemon around the rim of your glass.
• Top off with a juice box of Honest Kids Berry Berry Good Lemonade (Brand is very important here because you want the low-sugar stuff. I’m not being paid to say this, obviously. But! Any juice box company that wants to start paying me to mix their juice with booze should call me so we can be zillionaires. Tipsy, responsible, adult zillionaires who have obviously employed child care before embarking on this endeavor. High fives.)

The Mighty Summit is this weekend! So here’s to splashing your feet in a hot tub, feeling small under redwood trees, wrapping yourself in a wool blanket, and laughing until you pee a little.

What are you toasting this week?

This is part of my Life List project to taste 100 cocktails. Here are a few more:
