Shaking up Christmas


Andrew pulled a muscle in his back today, so I suggested we have a cocktail to help relax said muscle. He found the Big Easy Gin Fizz in my Atomic Cocktails: Mixed Drinks for Modern Times mixbook. To make it even better, was my new martini shaker courtesy of my step mom Pam. And yes, the bell jingles while it shakes. Enjoy!

Big Easy Gin Fizz

2 ounces of gin

2 ounces sweet lime juice

1/4 ounce Cointreau

1/2 ounce simple syrup

2 to 3 ounces of club soda (or tonic if it’s all you have)

In your jingle bell shaker, shake all of the ingredients over ice. Pour into a fabulous glass and float the soda on top. Garnish with a lemon or cherry. And without question, enjoy!
