True story, when I was perusing recipes for a new Friday night cocktail, the name of this drink is what stopped me in my tracks
Not because I’m interested in drinking anything that has to do with a feline (no offense to my bestie cat Shelby) but because my Grandmother’s name was Kitty
Kitty and her sister Nellie loved highballs. They would have a cocktail and venture into a feature film in Manhattan during the 1930’s. Sounds like a lovely afternoon to me!
Oh, and I also love wine. And as soon as I saw a cocktail made with wine, I was curious
Turns out, this simple drink is reminiscent of a sangria, but WAY easier to prepare and there’s no melding time
Simply combine 2 ounces of your favorite dry red wine (I used a cabernet) & 3 ounces of ginger ale. Pour over crushed ice in a highball glass with a squeeze of fresh lime
That’s it! A simple & refreshing cocktail!
