Soixante-Neuf

This week’s cocktail is in French, which means it must be classy. In fact, the Soixante-Neuf is just a slight variation on a classic French 75, but it does require uncorking a bottle of sparkling wine, so it is, in fact, pretty darn classy.

Santé!

This is my favorite new cocktail in quite some time, and my now-beloved Tanqueray No. 10 blends so seamlessly with the citrus flavors that you’d hardly even know it was there… it’s just a whisper.

Speaking on Tanqueray No. 10, I’ve finally made it through my very first bottle of gin, so I guess it’s about time to hit up the liquor store again. I’ll definitely be coming home with a new bottle of No. 10, but I’m looking to expand my horizons, too. What’s your favorite gin? How do you drink it?
