What we're drinking tonight
I’m at the end of my rope here, people. If the sun isn’t here to stay soon, I’m slipping into tequila-induced hibernation mode and enlisting Prince Charming to rouse me in mid-June. I figure a few tasty tequila-based Negronis should kick off my epic nap with dreams of Mexican sunshine but, for the record, many other classic gin cocktails taste equally lovely when mixed with blanco tequila – like the Last Word, the Martinez and the South Side.
Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Strain into a rocks glass over a large ice cube. Garnish with a grapefruit twist. Drink. Repeat. Slumber.
