I’m a huge fan of cocktails with a kick. My hubs… not so much. But I love them. Love Gin. Love Bloody Mary’s. Love Tomatoes. Love Cucumbers. Love Spicy Cocktails. So when I created today’s Spicy Tomato Gin & Tonic, I literally exclaimed… “That’s the best damn cocktail I’ve ever made!” I have never said that before. NEVER. But I love this drink. Made with really good ingredients (many you’d find in a classic Bloody Mary) like great gin, amazing tonic (there IS a difference), fresh dill, cute little cherry tomatoes, hothouse cucumbers (the long skinny kind wrapped in plastic), jalapenos and a steak seasoning rim. It’s a salad and a cocktail rolled into one and I love every sip! Dang… now I want another one!
