A Summer Cocktail Must-Try: Gin Quigley

What’s summer without an ice-cold cocktail?!

This is one of my favorites — it’s so easy and you only need one!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Gin of your choosing
  2. Grapefruit juice
  3. Tonic water

Equal parts of each and mix together. It has quite the kick, but it doesn’t get any more refreshing than this.
