A warm ocean breeze... Laying in the sand, enjoying the sun, sipping on a nice smooth cocktail... Sounds good right??? Especially considering its winter and about 11 degrees here in Chicago. Which brings us to this weekends #30for30 the Sea Breeze.
Sea Breeze was actually one of the first drinks I made as a bartender. Sweet, tart, but very refreshing. A classic summertime drink. The cocktail was born in the 1920s, but the recipe was slightly different than the one used today. The original recipe called for Gin and Grenadine, as it was near the end of the Prohibition era. Ironically I'm posting this drink on the Eve of Repeal Day..
So while we suffer thru these cold months and your sitting at home waiting for the weather to break, have yourself a Sea Breeze, a get a taste of the summer....
Until Next Time
