Gin Fix

So Valentine's came around and this was my ode to the lover's holiday.  That, and I wanted to make my first "fix."  I googled the cocktail to find a proper recipe when I came across Eric Alperin's gin version (available at his bar, The Varnish).  What is especially great, is that his fix integrates grenadine into the cocktail.  Perfect for me since I had just made myself grenadine 2 weeks ago!            

Gin Fix

2 ounces Gin
¾ ounce Homemade Grenadine
½ ounce Fresh Lemon Juice 
Lemon Peel for Garnish.

In a cocktail shaker, combine the first three ingredients with ice.  Shake and strain the mixture over an old fashioned glass filled with crushed ice.  Garnish with a lemon twist and/or swizzle stick.  Cheers!

Another look at the drink I had nobody to share with.  Hopefully next Valentine's...hopefully.
