favorite things (13) g&t's


g&t baby, originally uploaded by sproutgirl74 / jenifer lake.

aka "jen & tonics" around our house. hendrick's gin, extra, extra lime, 3/4 tonic (a good tonic with cane sugar, not corn syrup), 1/4 bubby water - sometimes a squeeze of meyer lemon too - drink up! you'll find me drinking these all year round. yes, i am a southern girl at heart in some ways. i canNOT wait to be drinking some g&t's with friends down in the southeast this summer :)

oh yeah, baby! we'll be drinking them together soon.
so you prefer the Hendrick's? I was eyeing it at the liquor store and was intrigued by the fact that it's cucumber based...do you find that affects the flavor much?

steph, you had hendricks at your party, no? i love this picture, jen, especially because i adore oilcloth. i had an oilcloth apron until it dissolved on me.

I would like to contribute to these G&T's...AKA jen&tonics. I have a huge meyer lemon tree in my new backyard...let's put it to use!

steph - try the hendrick's i think you'll like it! i think it's way more herbally in a nice, smooth way, other gins taste medicinal to me...

cydney - oil cloth is awesome for picnic camping in the bus :)

nic - you bet lady, say the time, i'm over!

summer - do the hendrick's!! you'll like it :)
