A Refreshing Juniper Lime Gin Cocktail (or Mocktail) Recipe

March 20, 2019

I’m a big fan of gin cocktails, especially in warmer months (like I hope are on the horizon). But, since I’m expecting and not drinking at the moment I wanted to create a simple cocktail that my friends and family could enjoy and an alternative for anyone else like me who isn’t drinking. Not only did this recipe turn out to look beautiful, it tastes delicious!

I’ve had this beautiful bottle of gin from Pomp & Whimsy sitting on my shelf for quite some time and I’m so sad that I didn’t dip into it before I found out I was expecting – Amy was raving about her cocktail! The soda you see here is from my friends at Dona Chai, I’ve created a couple recipes with their classic chai in the past, but I’ve been dying to try their spiced sodas. In all honesty these sodas stand alone (so freaking tasty). That being said, it was certainly fun to create a cocktail / mocktail with them and I know you guys will love this one. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
