Blender, Meet G&T: Frozen Gin and Tonics Are Your New Signature Summer Drink
As I've stated before, my summer foodie resolution is to drown my sorrows, stress, and anxiety in some righteous booze! After this reading this awesome article on Gin & Tonic, I'm totally intrigued by the idea of this amazing and delicious sounding beverage.
Check out the article below, from Serious Eats, which features a series of recipes and ideas on how to make tonic drinks even more interesting and delicious. My curiosity is through the roof! I'm anxious to make some of these drinks for my partner David and his friends; it's going to be a boozy summer! If i can type after these taste tests, I'll let you know how they taste!
I grew up in a household with a pretty strict definition of what's proper when it comes to gin and tonics.

The piney scent is embedded in my memory.
