Thirsty Thursday: Lady Luck


Yes, I know it’s Friday not Thursday. Today I’m off to Las Vegas for my best friend’s birthday/bachelorette party extravaganza. Personally, I kind of hate Vegas. Gambling, strippers and hot weather do nothing for me. Nevertheless, this cocktail seemed quite appropriate for the occasion.

If you don’t like gin, you probably won’t like this cocktail. It is very gin-y, but Hendrick’s Gin is a special kind of gin. It’s phenomenal. I had to go buy the Hendricks and blue curacao to make this and just assumed I had orange juice on hand. I never drink orange juice, but it seems to be one of those things you always have around. Not this time. So I used a pineapple coconut juice instead, which gave the drink a nice little tropical touch.
