Happy three days til Christmas!! So I have to be honest, the motivation behind this Christmas cocktail is actually from a song I have loved since I was a kid. Is anyone familiar with the Sammy Kershaw song "Queen Of My Double Wide Trailer"? When I told June the title of this song she burst out laughing and said "in some ways we couldn't be more different!" It's so true, while we are soul mates and have tons in common, my love for country music is met with a bit of confusion and returned with June's love of pop music. So, in this song there is a line that says "I ordered her a sloe gin fizz" and ever since hearing that line I first wanted to know what a sloe gin fizz was and once I found out, wanted to try one and have only just now made that happen! And naturally we gave it a Christmassy spin!
To start mix 2 oz of sloe gin
With 1 oz limoncello
Fill with ice and stir stir stir. If you have a shaker go ahead and shake shake shake!
Then sprinkle bits of rosemary in your glass and muddle them
Then fill your glasses with ice and pour the sloe gin and limoncello mixture over the ice and top with club soda
Then garnish with a sprig of rosemary and some cranberries! And enjoy! Just a quick note; this recipe yields 1 drink, multiply for as many drinks as you're making. And to give y'all some mood music to accompany your cocktails I bring to you one of Sammy Kershaw's greatest hits!
Queen Of My Double Wide Trailer...you're welcome!
