Goodnight Kiss Cocktail Recipe

This post contains affiliate links, if you click a link, I could get a peanut! 

Gin is my favorite spirit to drink! I love the flavor that is reminiscent of a Christmas Tree; I love the warm and fuzzy feeling it always gives me! I love to mix it and create new cocktails. Every weekend I mix up something a little different from the weekend before and it dawned on me... why am I not sharing these awesome recipes with you guys?!

This weekend, I made something so fantastic that it earned a name within moments of consuming it! If you like a sour drink, you are going to love the Goodnight Kiss. This drink combines Sparkling Pink Lemonade , concentrated sweetened Lime Juice and gin to bring a delicious drink that will make you pucker up, just like you are ready for a Goodnight Kiss!




Ingredients:
2 shots of extra dry gin
1 ounce of sweetened lime juice concentrate
4 ounces of sparkling pink lemonade
2 orange slices
1 maraschino cherry
1/4 teaspoon of sugar
Ice

Directions:
Place ice to your liking in a glass.
Place the orange slices and maraschino cherry on the ice
Add sweetened lime juice
Add sugar
Give the drink a gentle stir
Add Sparkling Pink Lemonade
Add the gin

This drink is great. It is kind of like those sour then sweet candies for kids. The first few sips, your lips pucker from the lime juice. After a few sips, it becomes sweeter. {Likely from the gin taking hold!} It is a lot of fun to drink!




Do yourself a favor. Resist the urge to eat the fruit right away. Let it soak in some of the gin! After a few moments, eat the fruit for a delicious fruity booze treat! I usually wait until the drink is drunk to nibble the fruit, always saying "This is the way to enjoy gin..."
