The Queen’s Tipple

The Queen's Tipple / Forkful of Awesome

This lovely concoction is inspired from a cocktail I had in Queens, New York this year.  It was so yummy, I made everyone in my party have a sip. And then they all ordered one.  Of course, I had to make a variation to enjoy in the leisure of my own house.  It has now become a family favorite.  At every holiday and get-together, we make sure we are stocked with all the essentials.  We usually run out.

The gin has the smooth taste of juniper, cucumber, and rose petals.  The St. Germain is a sweet elderflower liquor, with the scent of citrus and tropical fruit.  The lemon adds a spark of freshness.  It is sublime.  It tastes pure.  Not too sweet, not too dry.  Just right.

Forewarning- these go down easily.  Very easily.  One brings on happiness.  Two makes you want to dance.  Three makes you ramble excessively to strangers.  Four- let’s not discuss, shall we.  So, it goes without saying that this is the perfect party drink!  Everyone will have a smashing time, evidenced below.
