The past week has been a total whirlwind. I took my last law school final, had my parents in town for 5 days, graduated from law school Sunday afternoon and started the bar review marathon called Bar/Bri Monday at 9AM. Needless to say, there has been much celebration and wonderful meals out with friends and family, but no time in my kitchen (or even to watch many TV Finales-Greys, Lost, GG). Today was also the first day where the temperature has been in the 80s in Chicago. After a long winter and damp “spring,” the warmth is much appreciated. The perfect thing for a warm sunny evening is this cocktail.
If you can find Domaine De Canton, it really is worth the splurge. It is a fresh tasting ginger liqueur that is perfectly drinkable on its own but is downright refreshing and delicious mixed with TJs Sparkling Lemonade. I usually put a shot over ice in a small glass and just fill it with the lemonade. It is just perfect for a springtime celebration.
Also, I know that I have many lurkers out there (yes, I am talking to you) and I would love to get to know you, so leave a comment on this post telling me who you are and what you are most looking forward to this summer. I am looking forward to July 30th because I will be finished with the IL Bar!
Sparkling Ginger Lemonade
Domaine De Canton (Ginger Liqueur)
Sparkling Lemonade (or other soda or sparkling water)
Mix 1 shot of Domaine De Canton with the sparkling lemonade to fill a small glass over ice.
