Ginger Limeade Recipe

As I mentioned in my last Sips post or if you follow me over on SnapChat you know that I love me a cocktail, and my newest obsession is attempting to be domestic (AKA learn to make things myself). Although the kitchen and I have not been the best of friends I am getting there. I hope you enjoy and follow along on my journey to learn to DIY in the kitchen or at the bar cart.

Ever since my San Francisco trip I have been craving Slanted Door, one of the best restaurants I have been to in a long, long time. The one item on the menu I could not get enough of was their Ginger Limeade. It’s sweet, sour and so refreshing for summer. This recipe Ashley created, and I have been replicating ever since, is a dead ringer for the original. Just trust me, ginger fan or not you are going to love this cocktail!
