Author Notes: Born of a love of ginger fused with an artisanal gin into a lovely slushy-type mixture, topped up with seltzer water. Order up a hot afternoon, serve with a generous wedge of lime.

My favorite gin to use is Cascade Mountain, made in small batches in Bend, Oregon.

Serves: 2

  • Large handful of ice cubes
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 2 ounces good gin
  • 1 lime, cut in wedges
  1. Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high speed until the consistency of a slushy. Divide between 2 chilled glasses, and top up with cold seltzer. Add a good wedge of lime to each. Toast to summer. Or the Dallas Mavericks.
