DRINK OF THE MONTH, april 2014

April is now upon us and winter is releasing her grip. With spring comes a new cocktail menu at the (shameless plug alert) HORSESHOE GRILLE.

Being a restaurant that features BBQ and gluten-free menu options, I took the opportunity to marry the two for a unique and flavorful cocktail.

Gin meets Smoked Paprika

Gin meets Smoked Paprika


This is a gin lovers dream.  Not only does it wake up your mouth, it brings your nose to the party too.  As you draw the glass to your lips , the smell of BBQ fills your nose.  The biting taste of gin and lime is mellowed by the agave syrup and jazzed up by the smoked paprika.

In shaker w ice:
3oz tanqueray

I first discovered this smokey treat on the simplygluten-free.com website. I made some slight modifications to their Ginebra Gimlet.
