Tangerine & Gin

A word of warning, make sure you like tangerine juice first before making this. I know that it seems like a silly thing to say, but you would be surprised how many people don’t like tangerine juice. It’s not the most popular for a reason. It’s hard to describe, but I would call it a mix between orange and carrot juice…am I right, tangerine lovers? There’s something very savoury about it that brings forth a taste of vegetable juice as well.

This gin drink came about because I had tangerine juice. I had strawberries. I had gin. I always have mint. There were no recipes out there for anything like it, so I smashed it all together and prayed for it to work out.

It worked out quite darn well!

I quickly posted this recipe on my Facebook page last week when I whipped it up spur of the moment and now I’ll post it here for everyone to enjoy.

You are either going to love or hate the mint in this drink. I love mint in everything, so there was no way I was leaving it out.

I was shocked that Mike liked this drink as well, let’s face it, he’s picky. I handed it to him for a taste test and the resulting raised eyebrows with a “Hey, that’s good!” had me raising my own eyebrows in disbelief. I had totally pegged him for a tangerine juice hater.

Then again, doesn’t gin make everything better?

Happy cocktailing!
