The Happiest Hour {Salty Breeze}

Hi and happy Tuesday! If there is something I love more than special events, it's got to be mixing up tasty, seasonal cocktails. Sun shiny days are on there way and it's time to store the bourbon and break out the juicer. Fresh squeezed cocktails always seem to taste better, and using summer citrus will make the perfect seasonal sipper. This one is a combo of lemon and lime juice with a touch of honey, a bit of vanilla, a splash of gin and a sprinkle of sea salt. The subtle salty flavor give a nice balance to the sweet and tart. This very well may be my new spring cocktail. Here's the recipe.

:: Ingredients ::
2 oz Simple Syrup
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 Tablespoon Honey
1 Lime, juiced
1/2 Lemon, juiced
3 oz Gin
1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt

:: Directions ::
1. In a small saucepan, combine simple syrup, vanilla extract and honey. Heat and stir till honey is melted.
2. Combine the simple syrup mixture with remaining ingredients and shake to combine. Strain over ice, garnish with lime, and enjoy!
