Slippery When Wet – Gin Cocktail

Slippery when wet (gin cocktail)

I would say 98% of the time, if I’m going to have a cocktail, it’s going to have tequila in it. On a very rare occasion (or when I run out of tequila and don’t feel like going to the store), I’ll go for something with gin.

I’ve shared a rare gin cocktail here before (one of my most popular recipes, this gin basil smash), and it’s time for another!

This cocktail is one I came across on Epicurious (not sponsored, my favorite site for recipe inspiration!) It sounded a taddd weird, considering it has Greek yogurt in it, but it turns out that not only is this cocktail SUPER delicious, it’s also a beautiful pink color. The cracked black pepper on top takes it over the edge.

This is one of the very few cocktails you can make at home and really feel like you’re sitting at a fancy cocktail bar. Enjoy!

Combine the strawberry jam, lime juice, and honey in a cocktail shaker.

Muddle until well combined, about 30 seconds.

Then add the gin and Greek yogurt.

Add ice to the shaker and shake 20 times.

Fill a rocks glass with crushed ice, then strain the cocktail into it. I like to use the straining mechanism on the shaker as well as a fine mesh sieve to catch any large chunks of strawberry.

Grind black pepper on top and a lime wedge to garnish.
