The Grapefruit French Gimlet

Spring has sprung. And so has the weekend. Continuing my sip-and-stroke watercolor cocktail series with my friend and fellow creative Thuyvi Vo, we've crafted our April drink of choice: the french gimlet. frenchgimlet

This dainty drink is the ultimate compliment to a new white dress or Spring gathering with girlfriends. Only three ingredients are required: dry gin, St. Germaine, and grapefruit juice. The classic gimlet uses lime juice, but the blush hue is unbeatable, in my opinion!

And isn't the watercolor gorgeous? We decided to stir up some cocktail recipes beyond the point-and-shoot perspective. Thuyvi’s work introduces a fresh, curated approach to some of our essential seasonal beverages. What do you think? Cheers.
